Re: globe wheels

take it to a local wheel shop, they normally have someone on hand who can eitehr roll out the wheel or weld it up and machine it back down

Re: globe wheels

I believe original globes were only 10% magnesium so any wheel shop can weld them, but if they are 100% magnesium and you need them welded send me a PM.

Nah - there are a few specialty wheel repair shops out there that can repair/restore wheels. Not many places do it, but it can be done and is legal.

It is illegal, well in Vic anyway. Here's a bit on replacement wheels from the VicRoads Book:

Wheel nuts must engage the thread of the wheel stud for at least the same length as the original wheel nut and have the same taper as the mating wheel stud hole.

The stud pattern of the replacement wheel must be the same as the original. Re-drilling wheels, hubs, drums, discs or axle flanges is not permitted. Wheels with slotted stud holes are not permitted.

Aluminium alloy wheels (mags) are acceptable provided they meet the above requirements and are legibly and durably marked to show compliance with one of the following standards:

AS 1638 Australian Standard
DOT Department of Transport USA
JWLT Japanese Light Alloy Wheel Truck and Bus
JWLT Japanese Light Alloy Wheel
JIS Japanese Industry Standard
KBA German TUV Certification
VIA Vehicle Inspection Association Japan

Repaired or damaged alloy wheels are not acceptable.


The last line applies to this thread. As mentioned above this is in Victoria, not sure about ACT.
