    put the wheels in the oven at 400 degrees and then in my press and the adapters popped right off. I would imagine a 1979 Piper Super Cub came originally with 800x6 tires on 6" Cleveland wheels.

    Did the metal aileron or flap get damaged? They can be hard to find. I have some flaps and might know someone with ailerons. Sorry to see this happen, always hurts.
