W.R. Grace & Co. rims

Have came across 4 of these rims. It appears you need washers and lug nuts like cragers need. They have numbers and i see a 1977 on back, date? Very nice shape. Has 5 X 4 3/4 on back. I really thought they were new rims but now thinking they are old but in nice shape. Friend thought they came off 1970 mustang? Are they odd ball manufacturer or what? Have a sticker on inside with VENDEE 0361-6 appliance industries

Appliance made knock offs of most of the popular wheels from back in the day... I believe Appliance Wheels was a W.R. Grace Company...
