As a follow up on Jere's note,

My $.02

>From observation not part number check, 

"Tiger" steel wheels have a raised area around the lug nut 

that the Alpine wheel does not have.

And I would bet more than a few Alpines left Rootes with "Tiger" wheels.

The "Tiger" wheels break around the outside of the raised area.

I suspect the cause of failure is two fold, over torqueing the nuts 

and bigger (wider) / stickier tires than original (with some spirited
driving thrown in).
