So I'm rummaging around at Fuzzy's place and there in his scrap pile (hint) was a WWII half track combat rim with 75 year old non directional tire still mounted. I'm thinking, oh, people need these for half tracks, better save it. So I look it over, drag it out, load it in my little truck (200+ lbs), get it home, dismount the old tire, recycle it, and inspect the rim for defects. Wallowed out lug holes? Nope. Bent up rim edges? Nope. Severe pitting? Nope. Wobble when rotating? Nope. Must be a good rim. Blast it and well what have we here???? Crap.
