I think they are period 13" FPS magnesium alloy wheels. They were fitted to the early alloy bodied Fulvia Sport we used to own by the first owner in 1967 I recall. In fact the photo might be our car as it was Mendoza blue. Chris

Looking closely at the ad I can make out it has 185 60 R14 tyres. 
I’ve checked the inter web it seems you’re correct they are FPS wheels, most of which are 13”.
They also made them for the bmw 2002.

I want 14”, so I’ll probably never find some.
If anybody knows of a set, even if they need refurbishment please contact me. 

Thanks Paul

Here are some old Ebay ads from 2018-2019.  The FPS logo is clearly shown in the top right picture.  They do come up from time to time - I think I've seen 3 sets listed over the last three years, but all have been 13".

Thank for the info. At least I know who makes them and they turn up now and then. I’d never heard of them before.
I’ll keep looking.

Most of the Beta alloys were made by FPS.

I found this interesting link to most of the period wheels available for Fulvias. In Italian.
