    When I worked at Leyland Series III wheels were all Limestone and the Salesman's Manual stated this. I can't recall ever seeing silver wheels. Bahama Gold was a Range Rover colour.

    Hello BigBjourn,

    I am only going off what is in front of my nose. Apart from the army ones - all my Series 3s have silver rims. Both petrol and diesel plus 2.6 litre ones.

    Kind regards

    My series 3 88 (1972) had limestone rims from new.

    I suspect the colour of the wheels may have changed over the life of the series 3. I just googled series 3s pics and most were limestone but quite a few baby poop brown ones had silver wheels. So maybe the colour of the wheels is related to body colour in some way.

    Based on responses to my recent thread on S3 SWB wheels, they came in both silver and limestone. The Spanish Olive body colour seems to have had silver wheels.
