I'm thinking only half of those maybe wheel studs, the other half maybe hold the two halves of the rim together

Name of Leyland was used on all things from the late Leyland group imports to Australia. It was a really dumb marketing decision and helped to ruin Leyland's already waning reputation. eg the cheap BMCs (built in Scotland by redundant steel workers) had the same badge as the top shelf product from Southall and Lancashire.
The Contractor was a bespoke build and their were many permutations of engine and transmission.
