• Tire on rim


    Today I mounted the tires on the rims. This was one of the sometimes occuring tasks that take much longer than expected. The Dico tire of my kit did not really sit correctly on the rim. This was one of the problems various builder on the rebel builder list reported on. Polishing the rim and with the help of some soap the tire finally is sitting correctly on flanges of the rim.

    These 8.00-6 wheels are really huge. Probably cool to land on grass strips …
