1979 Wheels

Post by Hawk03 »

Hi everyone! My dad has 1979 Thunderbird and one of the wheels is showing some signs of rust, it seems anyway. It has the polycast (honey comb?) style wheel. Is it possible to separate the polycast part from the wheel? Or is it all one piece? The area affected is on one of the lips, it seem the polycast part is being pushed out from behind. Thanks.

Per your question, I have had no success at all myself in trying to separate the wheel from the rubber polycast portion. Not sure how they are affixed together. Sorry for not being of help to you. But nice to see someone trying to help out his dad. Bravo!

The polycast wheels are not repairable. Sorry.
