It seam like it is likely an RH type. Both the RH and the RH 5 deg wheels suffer from a very narrow cross section where the rim and ring lock together.  It is easy to deform the side ring taking it off, and can cause failure.

You're right about deforming and its almost impossible to repair them correctly.

Here's a 16" split ring that was deformed into a helix causing the diameter to change also.

My solid ring was not deformed at all. But it did bother me a bit that it was lighter and smaller in cross section than the others. The wheel was slightly different as well, mainly, the groove the ring engages in is deeper, that is, wider across the width of the rim.

I was eventually able to straighten it with clamps, shims and bar clamps to correct the diameter.

Bill, I use a heavy rubber hammer with shot to install rings. Works really well and avoids touching up paint.

What I find interesting is you could have Budd disc with Firestone or Goodyear type rim, and vise-versa.
Thats whats on my truck.

ring pried out without pushing the bead back! With a spit ring, where the bead goes over the ring when the tube/tire is inflated, it is imposable for it to come out, It is only when the bead DOESN"T go over the ring and push it into the groover tighter that they come apart. The solid rim/ solid ring types don't have the beard over the ring, but butt up against it. 
 With the split ring types once the bead is over the ring, you could cut it into segments and it still would not come apart.
I was referring to the solid side ring/solid rim Firestone type.

My 49 Diamond T on Eaton axles, Dayton wheels, has those solid rings also?

Hmmm, I'm surprised!
And a guy at Macungie had a little earlier Studebaker 1 ton with the same axles and rims.
