I may have some information for you. I have 2 of the 12/1/7 wheels that you are asking about. One is new and painted grey with a green sticker on the inside, such as a service replacement and the other is a used wheel that has been painted for use on a car. Now that doesn't answer the question as to whether they were only service replacement, but I can verify that my new wheel appears to be a service wheel. Doesn't mean that they weren't used for production during that time period though. Just thought I would throw a little more info into this discussion. I wouldn't think that anyone could say that these wheels were not used in production unless some undisputable documentation was produced. Those wheels should be considered correct for your 01B car IMHO. But hey, I'm not a judge!
