Yes they do; thanks.
I got them from @Cory 's back yard.;)
IDK
They are relatively new and the tire installed on "Whatever" bike they came off of were 700c
I'm new to these big wheels and asked @rustjunkie to help me at our Swap.
No one sells these tires or tubes there so I ordered on-line.
these rims have a 622mm Bead or ISO which is the key to finding the right size tire.
I asked for the biggest size they stock; which worked on my frame.
700 X 1.75 Schwalbe Marathon Plus

Hi Mr. Bravo. I can tell you where I got those wheels from. Picked up a piece of junk newer road bike at a yard sale for $10. The only reason I spent that much on it was because it had those coaster brake 700c wheels. I figured they would come in handy for some antique bike at some point. And sure enough.....
