The first thing to note is that the four-spoke RS alloy
wheels (shown below), were never fitted as standard to the MK1 RS2000 - so don't worry
that your car isn't a genuine RS just because it hasn't got them. Instead, they were a
popular optional extra but nowadays it seems that nearly every RS2 has them fitted!
Understandably too, as they are very attractive.
There are, however, different variations of this wheel and the
alloys fitted to the MK1 RS2000, MK11 RS2000, Capri RS3100, Capri Laser and Fiesta
Supersport are all slightly different.
The original MK1 RS2000 alloy wheels, were 5½ J X 13
....and are identifiable by having the part number
'H71AB 1007 AC' or description '13x5½-H2' cast into a spoke.
Its also worth mentioning that some wheels carry no markings
whatsoever and that the correct colour scheme is dark grey with grey centre caps wearing
the RS logo.
