Hi, this rim came with my car. The other 4 are clinchers. What might this one be?

Unknown rim.

Like this thread? http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/580352.html?1445636334

My other 4 are de-mountable.

Are these desirable to someone? Is it worth throwing the rim in with the ones I am going to get galvanized? I have an extra front wheel hub, I don't have the 2 other rim pieces or the wood fellows or a jig to get this to work.

Ignacio- not sure you are going to be happy with galvanized rims. Look into having them clear zinc plated. If you do decide to go that route, have them sandblasted or beadblasted before hand.

It is a Jaxon 30 x 3 1/2 clincher rim.
Jaxon No.11 demountable rim as below.

Yes, it's desirable for someone putting together a wood-felloe wheel. Don't galvanize it. Non-demountable rims are painted the same as the rest of the wheel, like this.



You have plenty of other stuff to do on that car. I wouldn't waste time on this now. If you have four demountables, you don't need a non-demountable fifth wheel. You can sell this to somebody who has a use for it, or keep it for a possible future project.
