Space ranger rim and tyre

I have a Space Ranger rim (original good condition Weller rim which had a different offset to the Ranger) and unused tyre which I want to pass on. The tyre is a Uniroyal 195 x 14. I don't want to junk it so I hope someone will have it and give me a donation for a dogs home I support.

The Handbrake-gctid3700
