Where did you get the new rim from? After looking at your pictures I dread to think what mine look like inside!

Heads up.

Bepco rear rims, nice and shiny and new, But undersize by about 5mm..

I went to install the wheel centre, and surprise surpise, IT dont blooy sit down on all the lugs like it did on the old rim.

So as i am now getting acustommed to butching new parts to make em fit...

In pix you can see i had to grind off a part of the lug to get a snug fit. I had to do this to 3 of the lugs..

To right HW...


After the debacle i had with the PTO shaft i actually chased them and got a decent credit for that stuff up, so used that to buy this rim, so was not surprised when i had to butcher it.... But yep bepco insured that no one else has had this problem... :evil: :twisted:

Well tyre if back on new rim. It looked a bit new so thought a bit of bending would make it look authentic... That's what I am telling myself..

That new rim can't be the same metal specs as the original rims. It shouldn't have bent that much fitting a tyre. :shock:

Mal I am a strong fella.... :thumbsup:

No not sure how the big bend in the rim happened, think i had bent the old tyre levers i had.... Plus i did not have the bead off the rim to make it easier to fit,, my brain fade moment.

Once i removed the bead from the opposite side i was fitting, It was a hell of a lot easier....

I recon the rims are about the same spec, they feel they weigh about the same and same thicken of metal.

I have been beating it with a slegde hammer and it dont want to play... So another use for the hydraulic log spliiter to straight it all out...
