All you have to do is taking off the P6 
grease cups and grind off the lip until
it fits in the recess in the wheel.

I have both Vitesse alloys and SD1 alloys
fitted to my P6. After grinding no problem.

What wheelstuds and nuts do you use?
Also SD1?

Today was a disheartening day.  After having the SD1 wheels sand 
blasted, and powder coated, and then having new Coker red band tires
mounted and balanced, I found that the SD1 wheels would not fit on the
front hubs.  The center hole in the SD1 wheels are to small for the
grease cup retainers to pass through.  Since I'd been told by more than
one person that this wasn't going to be a problem, I thought that I'd
bring it to everyones attention so it wouldn't happen to anyone else.

My whole life with our Rover has been injected with the most unusual
problems!  If I was sane, and not so in love with Rovers' I'd give up!
