13" Dia, Steel, 5.5J
Onlt fitted to LS Capri's from 1983 on. Similar were fitted to some pre 1985 Escorts, but they are a different offset.

13" Dia, Alloy
Fitted to Ghia models of the mk5 Cortina only. These are similar in style to mk2 Granada TRX alloys, but smaller, and only 4 stud so they are not interchangeable.

13" Dia, Alloy, 7J
Pepperpots alloys were fitted to pre-83 Capri 2.8i's, but were later replaced by 13" 7 spoke RS alloys. These were often swapped onto lower spec Capri's in the 80's, but now are rarely seen on any apart from untouched original cars. Visually the same as those fitted to Mk1 fiesta XR2/Sport models. A similar style was used on late Sierra's.

13" Dia, Alloy, 6J
Four spoke alloys fitted to laser model Mk3 Capri's. Popular swap for lots of classic fords. Similar in style to RS2000 but the edges of the spokes are thicker, and the centre of the spokes are not black.

RS 7 Spoke allots fitted to 2.8i models, but probably one of the most common swaps to other Capri's.

15" Dia, Alloy, 7J
Biggest wheels fitted as standard to the Capri, so another popular swap - available on last of the line 280 models. Same design as the 13" version found on 2.8i specials.
