- T6.1 Ocean 199
It doesn't matter how much Cooper slip or the like you put on, some designs of rim are tighter on the spigot than others. I cleaned up the spigots before fitting the wheel & still needed the wheel bolts to pull it fully onto the hub. I never had problems with the original 16" alloy wheels on the old van & never had a problem with steels.Hi, the stuck wheel is a common problem, I change my wheels twice a year for winter / summer tyre changes, you should wire brush the rust off and apply a thin smear of copper grease on the spigot that the wheel fit on, and the inside of the wheel that sits on the spigot. I never have any issues with wheels sticking, handy if you end up dealing with a puncture.
This is my 2nd van & second set of Dakar's & they have been a really tight fit on both. I seem to remember a poll a few years back & there were some other designs that seemed to stick & others that no-one had problems with.
