Could be I was wrong but my knowledge came from a fellow MGist who bought an 
early MGB new 
with chrome wire wheels installed. They were Dunlop wheels. The Factory 
supplied Dunlop wheels. I 
guess they could have been dealer installed - BUT the dealer probably obtained 
them from the 

Chrome wire wheels on early MGB were rare though just like O/D transmissions. 
Both were 
expensive and buyers were not willing to spend the extra money.
