No rivets to hold halves together and Not welded, Here is some pics,,, Is there someone that is doing restorations on these, I know this has been covered and tryed searching the history ,  So sorry for the question.

Bob:  you have the glued together rims.  (IF) they are able to get them apart without breaking anything.   There are people that will restore the center and then install a new currently made rim and then bolt it together with Grade 8 cap screws.  The cost to do this by the time you pay shipping each way is about the same as getting the new rims which are much safer.  give me a call and Ill fill you in better  JC  920 434 3645

+1 on getting new rims.

If you restore them they will have to use DOT rims anyway, just keep the original.
