Another fractured Split rim

Recommended Posts

I was going to run my 2249 Senior yesterday but thankfully found the rear tyre flat; the fractured on the inside of the rim. This is the second rim this has happened to, I was able to have that one repaired, but this one looks terminal.

I had driven the car all  days two before before!

Rust pitting looks pretty serious.  I'm sure that was a factor.  If all 4 wheels were in the same rusted condition I think that failures #3 and #4 are coming.

You are a lucky man to have caught that before a major disaster.

It does appear corrosion had significantly weakened the steel.  Is there an alternative to finding good used ones?
