Brief Description:  Correcting Front Wheel and Wheel assembly

I did some looking around on the web and found a reference to a discussion between someone and a Matco representative regarding the Vans supplied front wheel.

Now Given that the cost of sending the wheel back to the USA to get "machined" would cost at a minimum $200, I decided to attempt the "FIX".

Basiclally this required the a hole for the valve stem be drilled in the opposite wheel half so that the opening (which is in the wrong half) could be used correctly.

Some reference material also showed that the wheel half opening as shown in image 2, needed to be opened up to accomodate the placement nut. (Ref: Image 3.)

Refer to the next page for the completion of the wheel half.
