Re: Mounting tires to wheels

years ago when I worked at a tire shop we always placed the split in the lock ring at least 1/3 of a turn away from the valve. the ring on the bead is probebly the outside,and the serial number on the tire should be on the inside. hope this helps. Radar

Hyd brakes 29AA restorod

Just finished plumbing up the brakes on my truck and I thought that some of you guys might be intersted in seeing how I put my system together. Now that it can stop the next piece of the puzzle is to make it go. If I dig around the garage I might find somethig that can make that happen! Radar
