Looking to locate one original standard FE FC rim with or without tyre.
Ideally located in Sydney.
Please let me know what you have.

G'day Alex,

I've got four bare rims, two wheels with tyres that are propping up a front crossmember (still with the Olympic Airrides on them), and one wheel with a tyre. I suspect they are FB/EK, but to be honest I don't know how to tell the difference. You are welcome to one if I can workout what they are. They are located out at Greystanes.

Is there some info somewhere on how to identify the various early Holden wheels?

Cheers,
Harv

Harv,

There's a date code stamped into the rim on the inside (tube) side.

In any case FE to EH rims are all identical excepting that some centres are riveted to the rims rather than welded. Once they are on the car no difference is apparent. Am I correct?

There are differences in the size of the valve stem hole, and the position of the valve stem hole relative to the slots in the wheel centre, but that all got sorted out by late FC production.

Thanks for the replies.
My Brother in Law is doing some work on an FE and is chasing a standard wheel to sit in the boot for a spare.
A useable crossply tyre on a rim is the most ideal.

Email sent with photos (was going to post here, but Tinypic has ceased trading ☹️).

Let me know if you want one Alex.
