Sorry, Mark, whoever wrote what you read was wrong! The factory did not
offer wire wheels as an option until the TF came along (introduced at the
1953 Earl's Court, London, Motor Show.)

Dealers were able to retrofit TDs with wires as the parts interchanged
easily and, of course, many hundreds of TDs have since been fitted with
wires by using either TF parts, conversion kits from people such as Moss
Motors, or by the expedient of fitting MGA or MGA components.

And I'm not sure everyone will agree that TDs don't look good with wire
wheels! I have a grey car with chrome wire wheels in my shop at present and
it looks very elegant!
