WTB: 30" Rim

Post by Scott C. » Sat Oct 24, 2020 8:26 pm

I need a good 30" clincher type rim. Does anyone have a good one that they would sell?

Demountable or not? I have both, but postage may be a killer.

Do a little research by googling: mtfca rim. Not all rims work with all wheels, they were supplied by several company. While some will mix others will not. Here is a sample; http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/179374/238915.html

That would be a 23” rim for a 30x3+1/2 clincher tire then...

As Mark mentioned, there are some different style rims and some may fit your wheels better than others.

Knowing the year is not going to help. Who knows what style wheel may have been on or replaced in the last 95 years. Can you post a photo of the felloe area where the lug goes? Are the other 3 wheel felloes/rims all the same as in a set? Is it fixed lug or loose lug?

Post some pictures of the felloe needing the rim - the valve stem hole and where a lug mate. There maybe a name on t he inside of the felloe on either side of the valve stem hole/ Pictures of one that is complete would help. Like everyone has said many different felloes and rims and some combinations are not safe.

Scott, you should be safe with any 23" fixed lug BE rim other than a Hayes rim. The Hayes rims have a 'foot' on the lug which goes over the outer edge of the felloe.To fit a Hayes rim your felloes need a relief to allow that foot to go over the outer edge.

Hope this helps.
