Welding the centre back in can go wrong just as banding can. If you don't get the centre square to the rim then you have a bucked wheel - Don't weld it to the rim correctly and it can break.

So I look at it as a "six and 2 threes" - basically it needs to be done properly!

Hi John - thanks! I had the 4 wheels done, it worked out at £50/wheel compared to £90ish to get a wheel manufactured.

Garry - I did look at the option of a wider rim and welding it on to the Haf centre but couldn't source them anywhere.

I'm happy with the quality of the welding and for the speeds/loads that these will see I'm very confident that they'll provide good service.

It was Sean at Big Tyres that sorted it all out for me.
I got the tyres fitted on the rims today.

cheers

Old thread bump here but would you happen to have the stock numbers for those wheels? I'd like to get a quote on them.

Thanks.
