Hi,

This is another of those items on our cars that will get some varied opinions as to what is the correct type.
I have a '69 +2s that had the 15" wheel with black anodised spokes, leather covering and no thumb bits fitted when I purchased it, the car was 22 years old by then and gone through a few owners so wouldn't be able to say if it was original or not. I have since replaced this, as my original was damaged, with a similar wheel from a later +2 that is identical apart from being slightly less 'dished' .

Chris.
