Split Rims (narrow)

I am in the very early stages of rebuilding a 1928 M2 Durant Sedan that belonged to my wife's grandfather.

I seem to be having trouble with the split rims (which are not in good shape). I talking about the outer rim that attach to the tire and tube, not the inner rime that has attaches to the wooden spokes.

Most cars of this era seem to have a split rim with a 2.75 inch inner diameter (S2?). This is too big for my Durant and the rims I have, have an inner profile of 2.40 inches. I'm not sure if this means it is an "S4" type rim.

Do other Durant models have this narrower rim? If so, can anyone recommend a place for reproductions?

The only company I can find on the internet is in New Zealand and I have not contacted them directly yet. I am hoping there is someone a little more local.

Anyway, thank you for listening to me and if you can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Kindest regards,
