What Kind of Wheel is This?

The photo is of a wheel on my 1976 Forester TT. It looks similar to an old VW rim. If i want to buy a replacement, what search terms do i use? What is the proper name for this style wheel?



I have tried everything i can think of but Google gives me a thousand false leads.

In case you are curious, the tire size is ST215/75R14.

Thank you.

I wonder if that is the type of wheel they use on mobile homes?

Back in the 60s and early 70s Holiday Rambler used them. There now obsolete and nearly impossible to find.

Had these on my old Aristocrat TT. Replaced the hubs to get a modern bolt pattern and scrapped them!

You can change out the brake drum to a modern wheel. Nuera or Southwest Wheel in Dallas can supply the parts. And they will be a lot cheaper than Tractor Supply or an RV parts outlet.

I haven't seen that style in quite a while. Try these guys, though there are others. Not exactly the same, but the hub locating bosses are at the bolt holes, so this style may work.
