Had my wheels sandblasted and....

Post by Arche22772 » February 12th, 2018, 8:54 am

The sandblast guy said there was a crack in one of the wheels.
Is this something that can be welded or do I need to find another wheel?

This wheel was the passenger side outer dual wheel on my late 1930 AA 157.

Thanks
Ray

No chunks missing. I would weld it.

agreed - not a super critical spot and since its from hole to hole it wont crack any farther. Take it somewhere where they know what their doing and get it welded.

Yup. weld it up, grind it off, paint and use..
My dad in law actually welded several parts of a modern wheel , into the old spoke wheel, to make up one that I use all the time..
