What kind of epoxy should I use to get myself killed?

Such are the privileges and penalties of a free society, let your best judgement guide you in your choice. Just please don't ask me to ride along.

There's not enough good material for the epoxy to adhere to. I'd wrap it with duct tape. :-)

Steve will that go to your keeper pile or scrap pile?

Oh - I'd wire it down and run it. Of course, my girls don't generally exceed 7 mph.

Why, I've repaired dozens in a lot worse condition than that. I just use a dab of Elmer's glue and wrap it with duct tape and mount the tire. I"ve never had a problem. :-)

I would suggest that you look for a better one in Chickasha three weeks from now. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Steve,

This is easily repaired by replacing everything.

All kidding aside, usually, only one area is that bad. Sometimes you can take a couple rims, do a little cutting and welding to get one good rim. Is it worth the time and effort? So far, I have always had enough decent rims to not need to go to the trouble. Once again, that is what "behind the shop" is for. Some day I may be glad I have a few bad ones.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Roll tubing to the rim diameter and split it, Cut out rusted areas and weld spit tube in place?

Someone from down under was recently advertising pre made beads to epoxy in place for the repair. Best I remember the price was reasonable for 4 wheels. KGB

Isn't there a "Special Tar" that works on anything?
