Bill Rickard will have them or if you are looking for old ones try Bob Samukula or Bernunzio.

I took apart the vintage Vega rim assembly that I recently purchased. What an awesome piece of workmanship. The tone ring to rim fit is literally perfect. Hard to believe this thing is almost 90 years old. Some numbers on the inside of the tone ring and the shoe bearing band match the numbers stamped in the inside of the rim so I guess it's all original.The nickel is pretty scratched up so I was thinking of sending the three rings out to be plated . Was wondering if there were any potential problems I need to be aware of . Any insight into this topic would much appreciated
