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. Understandably too, as they are very attractive.
There are, however, different variations of this wheel and the alloys fitted to the MK1 RS2000, MK2 RS2000, Capri RS3100, Capri Laser and Fiesta SuperSport are all slightly different.
The original MK1 RS2000 alloys wheels were 5½ J x 13 inch….
….. and are identifiable by having the part number ‘H71AB 1007 AC’ or the description ’13 x 5½ – 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. The centre caps push in from the back of the wheel.
