ok, so those of you who have been keeping up with my "how to build a volksrod" thread will know that i've just got my moon discs and had just sorted my wheels out ready for the new tyres to be fitted....

i took them down to my local fitters and the guy said cool come back later...i go back and he says "you know you got holes in your rims" i say yes cos i just drilled them out for the self tapping screws for the moon discs as on the instructions..4mm drill etc...."well they're letting all the air out" he replies...oh...he said he used some sealant to get them bunged up till i got the screws in and so i took them home fitted them up and thats fine...but this seems like a bit of a crap design and a hassel really...

can anyone see a way around this?..i was thinkin could i get innertubes put in despite them being tubeless tyres??...and is this normal? are they really that badly designed or are they designed with innertube style tyres in mind?

any help would be great as its stupid little problems like this that get on my tits...

cheers guys! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img]

One price to pay for those types of moon discs. I hear people usually put a tad of sealant before screwing the screw in. They have clip on moon discs as well that works like modern hub caps.

the screw on kind are actually the only ones you can use for any kind of racing as the clip in ones will just fly off at speed.. I'm not saying you'll be racing, but that's why theyre designed that way

I had a set of these on a bug way back

I baught a tire patch kit which consists iof a special needle-like screwdriver tool and several rubbery sticky worms that get pushed into a hole in the tire itself with this tool.
I pushed a little chunk of this crap into the moondisc screw holes in the rim, them monuted disc and screwed on. went for years n years without a leak.
