Alloy wheels

Test your alloy wheel IQ, second edition

The idea is the same as our “test your steel wheel IQ” series: can you name the make and model the following alloy wheels come from?

In some cases we’ve blacked out the logo on the center cap because it would have been too easy to guess otherwise. Also, there are several right answers for some of these wheels.

      2. It’s a 190, but we’ll take S-Class.
      5. Not a Volvo.
      6. Correct.
      7. Not a CX, but close.
      8. It’s not a Rover but I’d have to check, some might have been equipped with them.

  2. 1 – Renault 5 Gordini.
    2 – Mercedes 190.
    3 – Alfa GTV6.

    5. Peugeot 405
    6. BMW 5? or 6?
    7. Citroën XM
    8. Renault Safrane

  4. 1. Renault 5

    6. Jaguar.
    7. Citroën XM.

    • 3 is not a CX but you can bolt those wheels on to one, which might be why you thought of it. It’s much smaller than a CX.

      5. is not an Italian or Swedish.

      Like I mentioned above, 8 is not a Rover but that might be correct. I need to check whether Rovers used those wheels.
