My wheels will NOT come apart.

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

Rubber mallet does the trick for me every time. If there being particularly bastardy then a bit of head and cutting whatever they are bonded with.

sorry for hijacking this thread but i can't take the faces off the back barrels off my 3 piece gottis, the lips came off fine but the face won't come out for shit... any ideas what to do? The barrel doesn't really have any "lip" on which i can hit with a hammer

cut any visible sealer and toss them in the oven for about 10 minutes. tap the back of the face of the wheel with a rubber mallet.

for the record, i used the oven method without cutting the bead of sealer and they would NOT move...it needed to be cut.

Don't know if you're sarcastic or not.
But If you got one piece of the rims, then the other part it came off from is the 2nd = 2piece.
Otherwise if you could have the lip, the center and the rear barrel each apart, they'd be 3piece wheels.

You may have looked at the 3piece wheels.
