  • How to identify a real Kelsey Haynes Rim

    I was told when I bought my car the rim in the trunk was one. When I look at it I see NO markings on it that I could find anywhere.

    It usually has a KH right on the front between the mounting holes.

      I will have to look closer. If it is one is it worth anything?

        Is it vented or non vented? Original rims should be non vented.

          There were a number of companies marketing spoked wheels back then besides KH. As John said, you should be able to see the KH letters stamped into the rim if it is one. If not, it probably was made by one of the other companies that were also supplying KH style rims to Ford back then.
