Hi all

bit of a long shot but i wondered if anyone could identify the rim of this wheel i bought at a boot sale , it is a White Industries hub 32 h which seems pretty good nick but the rim has lost its stickers , you can see where they were but cant find any marks anywhere on it , it has a kind of matt silver finish if thats a clue at all ?

I'd say 217 the 517 has a square edge/ridge where it transitions from he spoke bed to the angled section down to the rim.
