No, this wheel is a “lip laced” design, meaning the spokes enter the lip of the wheel. Due to this feature the wheels cannot safely be made tubeless. When ordering these wheels order either a radial tube or bias tube depending on what style of tire you will use. A sales representative can assist you if you are unsure.
Mounting the weights to the inside of the wheel (static balancing) is common practice at Coker Tire. We recommend Static balancing on all of our products. With Static balancing the weight to balance the tire out is all put on the inside of the tire as opposed to the weight being distributed on either side of the wheel. The reason we recommend Static Balancing is because of the nature and application of the tires. The white rubber does not have the same properties as the black rubber. When weights are put on the white wall side, they leave impressions in the white rubber that will never come out. Also, on collector vehicles, weights on the outside can look unsightly, and are sometimes very noticeable.
We need all pertinent information up front in order to prevent any possible fitment issues. Unfortunately, once the tire & wheel combination has been put together, we are unable to take it back. We need all open variables solved before we ship something like this out. This is a benefit to you, the customer, as well as it is to us. It’s our goal to get you on the road without any problems.
30 denotes the overall diameter of the tire (30”), and 3 denotes the sidewall area of the tire from the rim to the shoulder (3”). To ascertain the wheel diameter, double the second number and subtract from the first. Rim diameter: 30x3 = (3”+ 3”) – 30” = 24” inch rim.
30 denotes the overall diameter of the tire (30”), and 3 1/2 denotes the sidewall area of the tire from the rim to the shoulder (3 1/2”). To ascertain the wheel diameter, double the second number and subtract from the first. Rim diameter: 30x3 1/2 = (3 1/2”+ 3 1/2”) – 30” = 23” inch rim.
Lug centric balancing simply means the wheel is affixed to the balancer by an adapter that goes through lug holes, not through the center hole of the rim. Unlike aluminum wheels, which usually have a drilled and almost perfect center hole placement, steel wheel’s center holes are stamped. This frequently causes the center hole to actually be slightly off-center. If the center hole is used to mount steel wheels to the balancer, the balance will be inaccurate and the tire will not perform at its best. Your wheel and tire ride on the studs, so you want the assembly to be balanced as it rides on the car. Yes, we recommend lug centric balancing to obtain the most accurate balance & best ride for your vehicle.
