Yeah, split rims suck. A good length of chain works if you don't have a cage handy.
That would be a very good substitute JReb.Good idea.
I was looking to get a tire replaced for an old dry van trailer we were using for storage about two years ago.None of the tire shops wanted to touch that split rim, but I found a small mexican shop who'd do it.They didn't have a cage, and when they were starting to air it up, I offered a chain- but they said no. I was watching as these two vatos were standing right over the rim and watching as it aired up, then decided to go wait in the truck so I could honestly tell the cops that I didn't see the tire take both their heads off.
