    Any use for these wheels after getting stripped?

    Just want to make sure before I throw them out. The tire is worn down on both, I don't mind trashing it as one if you guys say there is no fixing that.

    I'd try epoxying the hex in the wheel and use them on the front.

    I have often used Super Glue Professional Liquid on wheels like that. You glue the hex in and you are good! A few times I was able to get the hex out and the rim was good as new

    I have epoxed the hex into the hub and run them for years before. It's worth a try

    Things you will need to fix
    1. 5 min Loctite Epoxy or Devcon Brand industry strength
    2. Front or rear drive shaft
    3.Hex Nut
    4. saran wrap

    Clean the the inside up real nice wrap the hex nut up in saran wrap fill the empty rim hex with 5min epoxy place hex nut in hole push the axle through hex nut as if putting tires on your truck secure with lug nut. Let empoxy set up best if over night. I have used this trick on a few set of tires and it has paid off for me. I have a YouTube Video if you need it i can look for it when i get home

    The MIP hex nut was chewing up the hex pattern on my father in-laws Pro-line rims. So had him leave a set with me. I have fixed 4 complete pairs of tires for him after the first pair worked out. It just takes a little time don't rush it let the Epoxy harden. The last set i did i finished it off with a coat of guerrilla glue using a fine bristle paint brush to get it on thin.
