rim fix the easy way

Recommended Posts


After taking front wheels off my B110 , they where in really bad shape, had to use a heat gun on one side then water to break the seal on rusted dust cap .

after taking tires off , found rims to be all dinged up thru 45 years of use. grabed a 12" crescent wrench and pulled in or out depending on the ding on the edge of the rim and wow what a diffrence. Was going to use a hammer but this is way more precise.There are times when a hammer has its advantage.

Got 2 wheels for rear ,after discovering the factory rim color on inside, I went to local paint store to match paint. with new paint

rims will get new rubber on all corners.American made mud wolfs on rear to take on any challange.

The hole in the end of the wrench provides an excellent lever for tightening cap screws with a allen head. Be careful can strip the threads or snap a head off. Don't ask why I know.

      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!😁
