OZ Wheel Refurb


Recommended Posts

Hi There,

Has any one refurbished their OZ Futura's themselves, I know that there is a bit on it on the main site, I wanted to find out what problems there might be and if any one had any further information.

Regards

Simon

I've looked into this before and the reason why many refurb companies won't do them is that the gasket that seals the wheel on the split is very hard to come by from Oz.

BJV Engineering did mine so i'm assuming the bits needed are 'out there'.

I am very happy with what they did with my wheels.

Would be interested to know their 'source' though...

i did mine but only split the rears as they needed re-painting and polishing removed the centers did not split the two rim sections also replaced the bolts with new bbs m7s the fronts where ok and only needed the laquer striping off and re-polish the rim.

Thanks Simon. Will be useful if/when i need to replace bits. Comforting to know they are about though.

Rich - your wheels are gorgeous.

Cheers,

BJV did my wheels, mines are just the standard wheels not split rims or anything like that, they came and collected them and brought them back three days later looking brand new, they have done several jobs for me and I cant fault them, total cost including picking them up, removing tyres, re-furbing wheels, balancing and returning them to me was

Having actually had My Futuras for nearly a year from BJV after a stunning refurb they finally got fitted to the SE - GORGEOUS.

Cliff had to put air in them especially one up front though when we got to the school. Subsequently the next day FLAT again.

Couple of concerns;

Cliff where did you get your compressor thing? I want one.

Once i manage to reinflate and get down to a Tyre place hoping it's just a valve - does anyone think matters could be worse - like the 'seal/gasket' gone?

I sincerely hope not?

Any numpty proof tests i can do?

Thanks,

Rog, you can a mild soapy water solution. Just put the solution around the suspect areas. If there are any leaks you will get bubbles mate. You can do this on the rims, valve and tyre if you desire.

Thanks Paul and Cliff (NOT like in a man on man way),

Bought the cheap cigarette lighter halfrauds alternative so will keep that for the 'Golf of Fury' whilst getting the manly one you have.

Will try the bucket and suds thing Paul - but i think it needs air in first...

Oh joy.
