I just did a bit of research, and find that Motor Wheel Corporation 
made the Magnum 500 wheels, they are very common on the American 
Muscle car scene.

The Magstars are a Kelsey-Hayes product.

BTW, new Magnum 500 and new Magstars are available, though not in any 
Rover suitable sizes. The Magstars are $350 US each.
