I am trying to identify this auto owned by a family in Petaluma, Calif. in the teens. I initially thought it was a Willys-Knight, but if the dates on the photos are accurate, it would have been produced prior to the Willys-Knight lines. I'd love some help on this one. Thanks!

I just dug these up in the back yard of my 1930's home in Sacramento CA. I think they're old rims which would've used a tube, tire and wooden spokes, but can't verify. I can provide measurements if that helps in identification. In image 2081 you can see the single hole (for the valve stem?) an a few inches below that some sort of bracket/clamp point. This point is directly opposite the split in the rim. Also note the single rod I found which is sitting on top of the rim in the side view photo. They're obviously in very poor condition but I'm really curious if they have any value to anyone. Should I wire brush them to see if they clean up or leave as is?
