Thanks for your time Norman
I have split rims on our 54 Cruiser and I can't wait to get rid of them. They really are split, the rings I mean - cracked. Very dangerous - well, they would be if they held air.
My understanding is that there are very few places that will work on these rims because they are tricky and dangerous. I agree that it might be better to just replace with a good 5 bolt (what you will likely have) rim and have a beer.
