BUT!! its everything that…See More

18 months ago I applied for a third class medical as a student pilot.

They wanted a whole series of test, stress test, blood work, electro cardiogram, a…See More

Matco rims

After trying for the last couple of weeks to assemble the tires and rims I have given up. the O-rings supplied by Matco absolutely will not fit. It has two problems one it is way to small to go over the rim and two it is  to stiff, even with three people pulling together we were unable to even get it close to where the instruction say it should be to reassemble the rim. I have tried all that was suggested, I have lubricated the rim. put the O-ring in boiling water etc.  and still can't even get…See More

Matco Rims!

Posted on August 25, 2019 at 3:53pm 3 Comments

After spending a very frustrating week trying to mount my tubeless  tires on the Matco rims provided I  have given up. The O-rings they supply for sealing the two halves of the rims together absolutely will not fit. Matco say to roll the O-ring over the rim to the flat at the edge of the rim, assemble  the two halves and roll the O-ring back  to the center of the rim and lubricate the O-ring  and you should be good to go. Well this is absolute impossible. the O-rings are to…
