A friend of mine bought these wheels at an estate sale. I do not know what they fit. Anyone know what they are ... ??? He has a set of four, and wants to sell them if we can find out what they fit ... Thanks....

Donnie, those are Phelps wheels. Take a look at the original Phelps advertisement in this forum discussion from 2012 to see detail:

Tim, thanks for the link. Interesting set of wheels. I have not removed the rear axle stub yet to see what kind of taper may or may not be there. These would be very nice to use on a speedster if they will adapt fairly easily. From reading the link Tim posted, I assume that the hub caps will need to be made... It took almost 32 minutes to get an answer. Must have been because of Sunday evening after supper, slowed down the response time ... :-) :-) It is amazing the wealth of knowledge on this site and also the amount of active members. Thanks again .... Have fun and be safe Donnie Brown ...

Donnie, I am collecting photos and measurements of various accessory wire wheels, hoping to someday put out a listing/specification table. I have never personally seen a set of Phelps. Would you be willing to take and email some high quality photos of the front hubs (inside, outside), the rear hubs (inside, outside), and the wheels (again inside, outside)after you get them apart? Measurements of the diameters of hubs Front/Rear and inside/outside as well as wheel centers F/R and I/O would be super also! Thx / Tim
