Yes they should do, IIRC MG/rover have the same stud pattern, ET45 would be fine :thumbs_up:

Hmmm so what your saying is that you cant put the wheel right up against the studs because they are in the way?

do you mean the internal diameter of the wheel wont slide over the hub of the axles on the car or have i just got the entirely wrong end of the stick here?

Hi i am reffering to the centers of the rear drum and the front disk they look like caps do these need to be removed before the wheel will fit snuggly

yeah your on about what i described, those "caps" are mainly like dust covers to help prevent dirt n crap getting ino the wheel bearings etc, taking these off wont solve your problem at all.

the only way you can get your wheels to fit the car now is to file out the centre hole on the wheel that sits over these "caps". i had to do it to my alloys to make them fit my clio.

im kinda struggling to explain over here, its the wheels you need to alter, if not then they wont fit at all.

Finally have the wheels on had to file the centers out have managed to remove the rear dust caps so I could put the alloy centre caps of the wheel on, now puzzled do the front ones come off if not this is not a problem, just need to figure out to put picture up for you all to see what you think comments would be welcome
