Could some tell me what rim this is?
Am I likely to be able to find another to match?
And if not do you have any suggestions for similar rims that would be a close enough match?

Thanks.

Looks similar to the several Avenir / Sun Duro 17 rims from my 91 DB Apex and Axis. So could be the same - but I think there were other rims from that era that looked similar.

That sounds fairly likely, the wheel may well have been from an Axis actually. I assume there's very little chance of anyone having the rims for sale, so if anyone has any suggestions for rims that will look similar it would be appreciated.

Otherwise, I might need choose a new pair of rims and have the wheel rebuilt.

What's the hub?

And how worn is the braking surface?

It's an m732 hub and I'd estimate the braking surface is about 20% worn.

Looks like Sun Chinook CR16 to me.

It looks like a panaracer rim I have (I kid you not, genuinely a panaracer rim).
