Original or aftermarket?
« on: June 07, 2022, 08:27:45 AM »
Working on restoring my grandpa's 1986 kettle. Are these original, nonbranded wheels or are they an aftermarket replacement?

Thanks. He had lots of health issues before he died in 2009, so it's likely that he replaced the wheels himself in the late 90s/early 2000s.

I'd keep them if that's the case.  Maybe paint a wide whitewall on them, but I wouldn't undo his handiwork.
