Hi Guys, 

I need some help with identifying the following. These rims are on an old hay cart so history is limited to the rear end chassis which is from a 27-50. As can be seen the there is a difference between the front rims and the rear and at one stage all four rims have been removed from the hubs. I am unable to furnish better images as the cart is 16 hour drive away. My guess is the rim dimension is 24" by 6.00 but without access, as I have said, I am guessing. 

Any help with hub configuration and make would be appreciated as they may be scrapped soon.

The brass hubcaps with script Buick and lack of rock guards on the backing plates suggest the axles and hubs are 1924-1925.  Disk wheels that fit Buick are sought after and worth saving from the scrap bin.  Pictured below are wheels manufactured by Tuarc.  The tire is mounted on a demountable rim which is fastened to the wheel with rim bolts and wedges.  The hay cart wheels have disk center riveted to a rim stuffed into another rim and not using rim bolts.  It looks heavier than it should be for passenger car however it could be from another aftermarket wheel manufacturer.

I know the  Disteel and Tuarc single press rims like the ones in the back of this picture from Inverell. but I think the front rims from in the original subject are Chrysler 5 bolt mounted to Buick wood hubs and the rear possibly truck rims as they lock ring access and tube valve on the inner side of the rim.
