    Wanted 504 Steel wheels

    I need at least 4 steel road wheels for my 504: But they need to be the 9 hole type (5J14FH).

    (The original part number is/was 5403.70)

    If anyone has any they want to get rid of, please let me know.

    I have half-a-dozen of these wheels with tyres, some with usable tread. I was about to respond then I read your response to the oil leak problem in the for sale section. Con, mistakes are fleeting, being a dickhead is lifelong. Goodluck

    Speaking of 504 wheels, I've had a few leak air from the join between the rim and the centre. Is this a common problem?

    Stephen,

    If they are steel then it possibly due to rust.

    Clean the area; use rust convertor and put on a couple of coats of good quality paint (eg. Killrust). For really good sealing use a product called POR 15. (Car restorers use it for chassis repairs - and it is even recommended for repairing rusted petrol tanks).

    I have heard that Silastic also works - but you must use the neutral cure type (the one that doesn't have an ascetic smell - type used on metal roofing).

    If the wheels are alloy, then it may be that the alloy has become porous. (Over to the experts... -> anyone have any experience?)

    Are the wheel rims are riveted or welded to the centres? It could be the rivets coming loose, if they are welded to the centres it could be fatigue where the rim is welded to the centre, either way it could lead to a wheel failure down the track. It would be an idea to seek advice from a place like Adelaide Wheel and Rim on South Road who may be able to re-rivet the rim, or find another replacement rim if the welds are failing.

    I had one wheel go on me about 10 years ago, and now two on the car are leaking. I've already bought replacements and will rust-proof and paint them before fitting. If possible I'll get the leaky ones repaired as I might need them in the future.
