    Hello everyone
    I have two sets of rims that I can’t find them anywhere on the web.
    I need to know on which model they came originally.
    One of the part numbers is:
    Armstrong R&W 12
    16x6 LB 218156 82
    It was white with red and blue stripes, I did sandblast and White Electrosatic thick powder coat on them.
    And the other set was on my ‘69 convertible jeepster which are 15x6 (not sure about the width but it looked 6).
    Both sets photos are attached.

    Undoubtedly aftermarket. Not from Jeep.

    What Tim said.
    Top one looks like a normal white spoke wheel. That bottom one, I've never seen one like it. A real oddball!

    That bottom one may be a Jackman, they made several different centers.

    Wow, I just noticed your location- Tehran! Those wheels could have been something sold specifically in the middle East.

    I’m not sure about it because I’ve never seen them on any other SUV’s imported by individuals or thru Jeep or Ford or Dodge dealerships before 1979.
    (After the revolution in ‘79 almost all american brands closed their dealerships within a few years)

    They’re a bit different from white star steel rims that came with Renegades and CJ’s as I’ve seen here, specially in shape of triangles and offset and a couple of other details.
    And the thickness and weight is just crazy

    This is consistent with a Jackman wheel.

    Yes, both. I'd guess the top one with the stamped center is somewhat newer. The lower one looks like a disk center like Jackman sold back in the '70s. I have never seen that perforation style. That thick center disk is heavy. The lug nuts on this design can loosen with use, in my experience. Good to check occasionally when in service.

    Thanks! I just somehow managed to restore it in about a month to attend to a Classic Rally, from Tehran to Caspian Sea.
    I know it doesn’t look even 70% good but that’s all I could do in that time and all by myself
