Augusta wheels are nothing but trouble! James (Chugga) Parry and I are about to do a swap. I'm having a set of bolt - on wheels from him and he's having my knock - on wheels, spinners and drums. This morning I noticed one of the wheels on the car was in a sorry state. The rim has split - see photo. Trouble with those rims is that water can get in and rust its way out!
 Regards, John

This all scary stuff, I thought I had enough problems with my B20 wheels and now this rears its ugly head !!!!

Definitely time to get the wheels out, cleaned off and my strongest pair of 'off-the-shelf' reading glasses out, Oh, and also the Victorian toffee hammer, for delicate chipping)

Fingers crossed for all Augusta owners.

My post from October last year under Aurelia (the Spanish Aurelia project) is relevant:

There is a story about Aurelia wheels that might be worth remembering. The late Harry Manning was once driving a B20 through the city of Guildford when the rolled rim of a front wheel flew off and shed the tyre. Apparently the car mounted the pavement and ended up in a shop doorway. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Harry’s explanation was that the hollow inside of the rolled rim had corroded badly, although there was no sign of deterioration on the outside, and it just gave way. This was probably 40 years ago – what has happened to rolled rims since then I wonder?

It is odd that early Aprilias had rolled rims and the later ones didn’t. Yet Lancia went back to rolled rims for the early Aurelias and then moved on again. I was glad my 6th Series B20 had conventional rims.
