Default Rim Air Holes

Is there a way to add air holes to rims after the tires have been glued? when i gluesd no directions said 'puncture rim to let air in / out'. so now i have kind-of flat wheels that need holes =( any ideas? thx

Just use a body reamer. Don't get too crazy though, you could damage your inserts. Make each hole about an 1/8th of an inch.

You can also just cut the hole into the tire itself.

This is how Charlie Perez (Wookie) always put the holes into his wheels & tires. Charlie normally put it into the side wall of the tire.

If it works for a Stock ROAR National Champion it works for me I say.
