This is a badly corroded 8" Campy that I was planning to use on the front of my Pantera, that is until I cleaned, annealed and and bead blasted it.
The first picture shows what I found when I removed the old tire that was mounted. At this point, I had not cleaned, annealed or bead blasted the wheel. The subsequent photos show the wheel after cleaning, annealing and bead blasting. I could clearly see how extensive the pitting was once the corrosion was removed. These pits run all the way around the inside of the rim on both the inner and outer edges.
I would deem these wheels unsafe. Am I wrong? Thoughts?
