My wheels will NOT come apart.

How to split and rebuild them. Where to find spares. Want gold bolts, wider rims, flat caps etc.

here is the method that I always use and it takes 5 seconds to split, no heat no bullshit.

all you need is some spare tires.

put wheel without the front shell into the tire and put a 2 feet long 2x4" block of wood and just hit it with a hammer or something heavy. it will come appart 100%
make sure to put something soft on the floor like some cardboard so the face doesnt hit the ground when it splits from the inner shell.

happy splittin

WHY???
Put the wheels in the oven for 5-10 mins and they come apart without any force.
I've done 4 sets like this so far. :problem:

i guess a heatgun could work.
