Not for a Jag but when I took the tyres off my Austin 7 Special the rims were rusted badly. I put two of them into an electrolysis bath and after all the rust was gone it proved the rims are not worth saving. Not too surprising considering they are 94 years old.
Has anyone had experience with getting new rims made up and spoking them to the old hubs? All plain steel with no chrome.
They are pretty specific. Wish they looked like to photo below. Stamped Austin in the centre of the hub. I am chasing down a few options. I just spent half the day removing the other three tyres and cutting them up. May have a single wheel that would do as the spare.
I’m following up a few contacts here in Melbourne and have the number of a wheel rebuilder. Luckily someone in the Austin club offered me a free set of 4 rims undimpled so I’ll get them dimpled. Also have a couple of people with wheels to check out.
