In the 1980s and 1990s I had gotten a large trove of the now rare red and white large spoked wheels with lack tires.
The red ones were used in several 1960s/1970s sets, and both red and white ones were found in the 1974-79 Hobby set (only sold in Europe and Australia). The white large spoked wheels are much rarer than the red ones, having only been found in the 391 (Renault) and 395 (Rolls Royce) Homemaker set.
These rare white spoked wheels were NEVER sold in USA/Canada.
I have 2 sets of 6 wheels/tires.... in excellent white conditon... no nicks or blemishes... look like new... tires are also blemish free and still have a shine to them.
No seller on Bricklink in North America has these... so if you bought them from Europe, you could expect to pay a hefty shipping fee.http://www.bricklink.com/catalogPG.asp?P=35c01&colorID=1
Selling them for $18 per 6. That includes free shipping (yeah it it's really $15 + $3 shipping). Also if you tell me which model (391 or 395) you want it for, I will include other vintage parts from that era, also in great condition.
If you're like me, you hate opening up a package of used parts, because you never know what kind of nicks or blemishes (or worse... chew marks) you get on your parts. These are in top condition for used parts, and when built into a model will appear new.
Selling only to USA buyers... although I will entertain Canadian offers...

P.S. I need the money to ship out other orders...
