Help me identify wheels from 85' Peugeot

I got some 700c wheels with a peugeot i purchased but i swapped them out with my Campy rims, anyways they have no stampings or labels on them so i'm having trouble identifying who manufactured these things. The only things i know about them is that they are off a 501 Peugeot from 85, Mailard Helicomatic freewheel and hubs. My best guess was Rigidas or weinmans but i'm not too sure that's why i'm asking. Did mailard make rims? i'm guessing they didn't. Can someone answer this question? someone on the other forum i posted said "Wolber" could this be the answer?

No label on the rims? The label will on the opposite side from the valve stem.

Why does it matter who manufactured them?

Could either be a one of the later narrow Rigida rims from the 80's or a Mavic Module E. Both were common on mid 80's Peugeots.
It's almost surely original to the Helicomatic hub and your 85 Peugeot.

I had a Peugeot with 501 tubing and the wheel rims were Wolber Super Champions...

I have a couple of similar rims that came off of a thrift store Peugeot, I have no idea what they are.

House paint? Try rubbing alcohol, that will soften it as long as it is latex based.
