>I'm looking for two original-type wheels for my M37. They must be in

>outside AND inside. The split rings must also be absolutely straight and
>with virtually no rust. Either Budd or Goodyear should be OK (did anyone

>A couple of people have told me that it's impossible to find wheels in

>nice wheels. One of them had absolutely NO rust whatsoever and the
>others only had some light surface rust inside which, after
>sandblasting, showed just a few pits that were only about 1/64 inch
>Most of the used wheels that I've seen have a fair amount of rust inside
>the rim, forming two bands around the rim that correspond to the gaps
>between the flap and the tire beads. This is where water collects and
>stays wet for a long time. When the rust is sandblasted off, the pits
>from the rust often go quite deep into the metal, typically between 1/32
>and 1/16 inch deep (and sometimes more). Even though such wheels may be
>safe enough, I'd still prefer to find some with less rust.
>If anyone has a couple of nice M37 wheels they'd like to sell, e-mail
>the details to me.
