I bought some wire wheels used. $290
whole deal,new tires $500
kit to install $300
new line up $85
mount and balance $90
Over $1000 spent and my car is siting on jacks
all four corners.
They seam to be leaking from the tire bead (checked with spray bottle)
The bead looked like it may have had a bad seal job.
there was stuff on the side where the tire sits.
I did not pay to much attention to it since I was not farmiler with wire wheels.
Now thats what I'm thinking it is.

Anyone can help me out???????????????

This is a pic from the seller .
Look at how the seal is comming up on the wheels bead.
They were all like that.
Do you think thats my problem ?
none
paid 177 + ship then paid him another $60-$70 cuz the shipping was not correct.

Can I just take off what's stoping the wheel from sitting flush on the bead ?
I assume I could accomplish the reseal job pretty easily if needed.
After seeing that post.
What the going rate for someone else to reseal wheels.
Trying to deal with the seller and he's telling me 12-20 each.
That seams way to cheap since theres alot of labor.
