split rim replacements '53 flying cloud
Hi guys. Hope you can help a newbie here on some wheels and info. Headed over to pick up my 53 21ft flying cloud and it has the original split rims on it with tired tires. I need to remove these before I tow it home. Can you tell me the correct steel wheel and tire combo to purchase so i can safely get it home several hundred miles.
Also, Im reasonably sure the lug nuts will be really hard to remove due to age, etc. Should I take a propane torch to heat the lugs and or nuts, etc. I dont want to get them real hot because of the bearings, grease, etc. Is that even advisable ? Lubricants may not be of much use over the top of the lugs, etc. I plan to take a lug wrench and a long hollow bar for added leverage. Any suggestions. Any and all help is GREATLY APPRECIATED, as always.
