Thanks for all the help. These are split rims, so no chance of going tubeless. But they are easy for a do it yourselfer to mount, I just have to put chains around it for safety while I inflate it.

Don't you mean they have lock rings? I didn't think Duesenberg had split rims. But what do I know.

@mike- most people that I know use the two terms interchangeably. You have to remove the lock(ing) ring to "split" the tire/wheel assembly apart to perform a repair. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

The largest tubes available in Germany I found are 7.00-19, like these:

But it might be useful to ask this shop for other sizes, possibly not listed in their Onlineshop.

Good luck.

For a definition of lock ring rims and split rims go to Universal tires web site. The term does seem to be used interchangeably but the two rims are not the same. Not even close.

Bob Roller replied the topic: Split rims==snap rings
I always heard them referred to as snap rings and learned early that the safest way to air up a tire with these devices is to make sure you are off to one side when doing it. If the tire and wheel are off the vehicle,turn the wheel and tire fACE SIDE DOWN.
