Rim identification question

#1

Post by oldschoolbobber » Sat Jan 26, 2008 11:34 pm

I am restoring a 51 El and want to use Kelsey Haynes rims,I have two rims but they are marked with a number 43006-62 and a mark F&H.
Can someone tell me more about these rims?

Thanks

I think the -62 rims had the small valve stem hole for the metal valve stem. The big hole rims are for your year. You can use a metal stem on a big hole rim, but not a rubber stem in a small hole rim.
