Clincher rims hold the tire bead in a groove eg the blue wheel.

Most common usage of the term split rim is incorrect.  A true split rim has a split across the rim, allowing it to be collapsed to change a tire.  Various locking devices are used as shown.

Higher class cars had two or three piece rims (should NOT be called split).  see pictures.

The rims that are referred to a "widow makers" are the two and three piece rims.
