Calling all old(er) gents

Post by moizeau »

I'm sorting through some stuff and have found some wheels that were on my Landy. They are 6.5" 16" to suit the 750 tyres for trialling. I thought they were standard LWB rims but apparently not due to the 3 nipples on the outer face that would carry a hub cap. The 2 with tyres are slighlty different but have the same offset as far as I can see. I've been told they maybe from an Austin LD van but google images say not.
Any ideas? I want to sell them but don't want to falsely advertise them.

Austin Gypsy as some of them came with hub caps ? Though I don't think they came with that width wheel :-k

Thanks chaps, the standard LWB rim, which I'll photo tomorrow, is identical bar the nipples.
