Itp - T 9 pro rims junk

Just a heads up, I went to take the 10 inch rims off the xx to reinstall the stockers and they were stuck on. The holes in the rim are barely big enough to get over the hub bolts and when I went to take them off after only about an hour ride time, the threads actually dug into the rim. Had to lube it up to get them off. Thankfully no damage to the threads. I wasn't happy with the overall quality when I got them. I know I can drill the holes out a little bit but I don't like being 50 inches wide in the rear anyway so I'll stick with the stockers for now. The stock rims have a steel ring around the hole to prevent it from imprinting. The itp is bare aluminum.

Did you use the oem lug nuts? If so, did you flip them around so the flat portion was against the rim? Most aftermarket rims do not use a tapered lug nut, they need a flange nut. So if you installed the stock lugs with the tapered side towards the rim, that is not good and explains why you had a problem.

I have same problems with the dwt wheels. And I did flip the lug nuts. I had to go as far as removing the hub assembly, and then beating it off the rim. I used a pvc pipe and BFH, took several swings. I'm planing on getting a step drill bit, and enlarging the hole before I re-install them. I thought mine stuck because I plasti-dipped the hubs awhile back. But when they came off, they did strip a ring or two of the lug threads...!

Yea I reversed the oem lug nuts too. I only rode with them on for about an hour in total so I didn't have to beat it off with a hammer, just pulled and punched it by hand after I lubed it up with wd but the aluminum is all chewed up. Stupid design IMO, they should have some kind of steel collar around the holes like the oe rims do to prevent the steel threads from indenting.

Just so that it doesn't sound like I'm bashing the company, this is the first itp product I've ever had a problem with. I have 3 sets of ss rims for my 4x4s that have been great. They also have a lifetime warranty which is nice. I've never had a problem with an itp tire either. Usually made very well but their t-9 rims in my opinion are shabby

I have this issue with regular DWT's and OMF's too. After having to bang a set off with a hammer I made sure to add a nice rubber mallet to all pit boxes.

Yeah this situation could be a real pita during a race. A simple tire change taking 15 mins!

I have DWT and ITP rims of all sizes for my T-rexx. Try using steel washers between the lug nuts and rims. It'll stop the hammering off the rims.

I'll let you try this, let me know how it works. That is if you put your 10's back on. I still plan on the drill bit method. I know the washer would be easier, but I don't understand how the spacer would solve to zero clearance issue. Hell there hard to put on, let alone get off after torqued and road on. So opening them up would make them easy to put on and remove. And if I drill to big of a hole, I can always add the washer's anyways...
