For you yes . But thats not the answer .Also it is not the Wibasto sun roof thats been fitted .We can see the cars been rebuilt at some time along with a respray ..And not a very good one . There is a funny thing going on here .So keep looking .

kevdupuls Yes thats it , the rims are not the same , holes in rears , but none in the fronts .And at the same time check the other side .May be wheels were replaced because of corrosion .But why not keep the wheels on one axle .Tyres shop might have been drunk at the time the were tyres were fitted ,,who knows

Ianrandom,. And i dont think we will ever know why the wheels are not all the same type.
And more of a puzzle , is why the slotted wheels are not fitted on to one axle , and not split up like front to rear . May be the tyres needed swapping around to get more miles out of them , and the owner thought, ho well, no one will notice .This silver one had work done to it .This is how they . looked .
