My Sunbeam Parts List (Supplement to the Alpine Parts List, was an 
addition to the "Sunbeam Alpine" parts list for Dealers and Service 

"A brand new addition to our site, The *ORIGINAL* Rootes Parts List 
Supplement for the Sunbeam "260", 2nd Issue, January, 1965."

It was intended to list parts that are unique to the Tiger (260), and an 
addendum to the Alpine Parts List.
It does list the road wheels as:

Rootes Part Number 1214930 

See http://www.tigersunited.com/resources/parts_rs260/FactParts.asp

I do not have the Alpine parts list, so cannot verify if it lists the 
same number.
