Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: ID these wheels?

This set of wheels, two fronts and two rears, is a mystery to their owner and to me. Anybody know about them? As you can see, a couple of them have been altered (extra bolts welded in) to mount Hayes rims. But what about the rims without lugs? What's keeps them from spinning?

Gee whiz, twenty-four hour later and still no comment. I thought surely we would have heard from the wheel experts by now.

Very interesting two piece disks!
How are the front hubs secured to the disks?
I see the weld on the rears but...
I'm totally daft on rims but someone will recognize these. :-) I've cheated along all these years with "regular" 16 inch tires.....
'Cept when I was a teenager, didn't turn out mounting hard/old tires on crappy sharp/old rims.
Too cool wheels.

I'm no wheel expert by any means, and I can't ID those wheels. But I do know that not all demountable rims used lugs which were attached to the rim. Many of them used lugs which were loose. It looks as if those wheels used 6-lug rims, hence the 4 bolts welded onto the wheel to use a Hayes rim.
