1929 Olds split rim

Recommended Posts

I've had a flat and installed a new tire and tube on the split rim. I have been trying for days to remount it on the hub with no luck. I'm to the point of buying a sledge hammer and see if I can force it on that way. But was hoping someone would point out a method that wouldn't  destroy the wooden spokes.

I can't believe it took me this long to discover the rim was tapered and only went on in one direction. Well I'm a newby and learning.

Eventually you will be able to do that whole job in 15 minutes.  It just takes practice.  In 400,000 miles I have replaced 5 sets of tires plus a few flats so 25 times I have replaced a tire, tube and flap.  Almost painless now.

I had a friend with 29 Olds, a great car.  Attached is a picture of his Olds, one just like his Father owned and my Pontiac that my Grandfather bought new.

I hope you enjoy your Oldsmobile as much as Ihave enjoyed my Pontiac.
