Thread: Split Rims

  1. #1

    Split Rims

    A up chaps
    im getting fed up of inflating tyres due to leaky alloys
    the issue I've got is BBS Westwood split rims

    is it worth splitting them for refurb or not, that is the question

    any thoughts

    it'll be down to a bolt or a flat spot.... take them off and place them in a large container filled with water... watch for the bubbles and this will show you where the problem is, that way you will only need to fix the one wheel?

    to be honest the front face casting is holding up quite well
    the problem seams to be the machined body
    the lacquer has gone all crap round the rim
