If the wheel has two holes in face, you'll have to find a puller . I think though , you'll have to remove transaxle and stand it on the good side and pour penetrating oil down the bad side and the apply heat to the frozen area to help come off with a puller. I am affraid to say removing it will not be easy.

Last summer I removed one- I pulled with a puller, heated it with a torch, air hammered on the hub, and whacked the forcing screw with a hammer. Repeatedly. Finally got it off, it was stretched so far from pulling that the offset was noticably different. Luckily, I put the rim in a press and pushed it back, and it ran straight as an arrow.

If all you want is a tire that holds air, I would get or borrow some tire spoons and just slip one side off the rim and sneak a tube in.

before you ruin the rim , just strip the tire off the rim and put a new one on . couple screw drivers , soapy water, quick and simple. wramp a rachet strap around new tire to help get air in it or use a tube.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
