Newbie here again and know zilch about wheels.
I have a set of 5 and have been told they're Motts, 2-rears that are keyed and slide on the tapered axle shaft and have what appears to be brake drums. The fronts have simple ball bearings for a small diam. spindle.
Are these the type where the rolled edge of the rim captures the bead on the tire?
Inside edge to inside edge about 2.75"

OK not letting me post pics--file too large?
Will take new pics tomorrow

Mott wheels are rarely talked about here, maybe they sold better in Australia than USA?
Here's an old thread: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/118802/145194.html?1276403041

Clincher tires were the most common type up to about 1924/25 when balloon tires took most of the market. Clinchers have thick beads that are held by the rim with help from a high air pressure.
