    Default German-made Airborne Trailer Wheel Rims ?

    A friend here in Norway has an Airborne trailer with the perforated spoke type wheel rim, not the split-rim.
    He finds that it is German-made. Apparently by a company called Kronprins.
    We are wondering whether pre-war civil cars in the UK were fitted with imported rims, and that the split-rim only came in to use once these stocks had been used up.

    Any theories, knowledge, data, would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Ade,
    If I knew how to, I'd post some pics here.
    If you send me a PM with ypur normal e-mail address, I'll send to you and you might post them if you think others might be interested.

    I am wondering whether trailers that were used by the Norwegian Brigade in Germany immediately post-war and British equipped, might have had these rims made locally to replace any original damaged British rims. I'm going to contact the Kronprins company to do some digging.
