Reply To: rim failure – need a 19″ split rim


Hi Robert,

I have been chasing the same problem for 6 months.  I was able to get my hands on the basic rim for the 19×700, but without the bevel and bead that allow them to attach to the wheel.  Vintage Tire in PA.  I found a welder who had access to a lathe that could turn them to shape after welding them in, but it was going to be tedious to do the weld without warping the rim.   I wasn’t confident they could do it correctly, so I am still searching or other options.    Coker used to make them, but they parted ways with the guy that ran their wheel fab shop.    If you find someone to make them, I am interested in at least two.
