Buyers Guide - RS Alloy Wheels

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.

....and are identifiable by having the part number 'H71AB 1007 AC' or description '13x5-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.
