I've got these two wheels, different Dia & one has "T-902-D2A 2" stamped on it, anybody know what they are off?

Odd, both looks like Model T with malleable iron spiders and Fordite rims, but it was only for some time around 1919 they were used together according to the encyclopedia, and the outer diameter (14.59") wasn't changed until the pressed steel spider was introduced in 1920 according to the gospel of Bruce? http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/S-T.htm#stw

What are the outer diameters?
If the larger rim is 16", then maybe malleable iron spiders were used longer in Canadian production, into the 16" era?

One is 50" circumference and the other 59" or 15 3/4 Dia & 16 3/4" Dia. Do the numbers mean anything?

Most likely Canadian - note the "Robertson" fasteners in the larger diameter one of the two.

Steve is correct, AND Ford still had cast spiders in Canada too.

Yes they will be Canadian as all NZ cars were. So does the numbers mean anything in regards to the year?
Thanks
