SUCKS! 4.5 hours and not done with one yet.
That is all
Alright Sally quit you’re bitch’n. Go get one of those super duper $8 grinding wheels from Lowes and go to town on it. It’s the one that has those little sand paper looking things stacked on it rather than a solid wheel. It cost twice as much as the other wheel but it seemed to work better for me.
What are you using a hand file??
OK mine probly took as long,puting on the wheel, tighten some lugs, spin, take off wheel, grind, repeat process. Wait its all coming back now yes I remember, I am just going to buy 16.5s next time.
Had 16.5's before sucks not being able to are down. and lost countless beads even when not aired down. I guess its the price to pay to run 15's
Hummer rims recentered or even duley hubs and a spacer out back.
I bet you could easly find some one localy who would trade you hubs.
sounds like you are being overcareful. the 2nd one will go faster!
airing down with 16.5s is prob until you find a set HUMMV rims like I did. at least I got something good from being in the army
To late just bought new 38.5x14.50-15 sx's and 15x8 wheels, no going back now.
Got one done finally
I used a 7" grinder and it took about an hour per wheel...then bought 2 1/2 backspaced beadlocks and realized I did all that grinding for nothing!!!
Welcome to the club!!
By the way...do you have any pics of your antiwrap bar??(sorry for the hyjack)
4.5 hours??? Wow, my first side took 2.5 and the second side took an hour, and I'm running 4 1/4" of backspacing. Sounds like you forgot to plug the grinder in
Woo Hoo! have about 10% left on the last caliper. The rear one on the 14 bolt took maybe 10 min, the other 60 caliper has maybe an hour. This when I upgrade to a 7" grinder
