Could anyone tell me what the letter "H" on the wheels stands for? One of my wheels(steel) is 51/2 J x 14 H2 and the other just
5 1/2 J x 14 ???have the same MB number,but by two different (german) manufacturers....after all,look absolutely identical...
Thanx alot!

using the rims on my 16 as an example:

8J x 16H2 ET34

8 = Rim Width (in.)
J = Flange Design

16 = Rim Diameter (in.)
H2 = Hump Design

ET34 = Offset (mm)

The Hump Design refers to the ring ledges on the landing shelves of a rim serving for firm retaining of tubeless tire on the wheel.
