Picked up 575 super a few days ago , had one wheel off of it but the owner had a few sets of spares there so we put one on and got it on the trailer. Ended up with a bunch of implements, a pair of hoods, and some extra tires and rims by the time it was over. For the price I thought it was a good deal. So I get to looking at the tires and 2 are 15 inch with light blue paint. I was under the impression dbs all had 16 inch rims, so were these for a specific model ? They are identical to the 16s other than color. Any thoughts ?

The DB's after 1~951 had 15" tires, which reduced their walking speed. 

 

I have no idea why some 15" rims are blue unless taken off a DB suburban tractor rather than a walk behind.   I just won a blue 15" and 16"green wheel on ebay.  They have the proper 3 lug on 5x5.5" bolt pattern.

All 16" DB rims are green, but depending on model and year the 15" rims were green, blue, yellow, or white.

The blue 15" ones are what came on the Super 575.
