I have a couple of Yamaha rear wheels that have the number 483 cast into the hubs on the brake drum side . One of them has a date stamp 8/80 on the rim and the other rim has no date stamp at all .
I thought that they were both TT500 wheels , but one of them may be from an IT425 . They have the distinctive 3 lightening holes in between the sprocket studs . The spokes are rusty on both wheels and the rims are scratched, but straight and don’t seem to have any cracks or flat spots . The wheel with no date stamp on the rim , has centrepunch marks around the brake side wheel bearing , so I would say that the bearing has been loose in the hub at some stage .
I would want $100 for the wheel without the centrepunch marks and $90 for the other one .

The hub was used in most 250/400 YZ's, some XT/TT & IT's from 75 to 80. The difference will be the rim.

As you said originally a 2.15 but the later models had a 2.50. Not many, if any, would notice the difference.

The thing to look for is the 3 holes in between each sprocket bolt.
