    stripped cleveland rims from repeated hub cap removal

    I used helicoil inserts and did them all. Now the screws hold nice and
    tight. Got the package from NAPA per recommendation from my A&P. Comes
    with drill, tool etc. If I remember right they are 8-32. THe inserts use a
    10-32 tap so you drill accordingly, put the 10-32 threads in the hole and
    then follow with the insert, then break off the tang.

    I've installed Heli-coils in some MM member's planes. Drill, tap, install coil, and repeat on the other holes.

    Note that many Cleveland wheels use 6-32 screws, not 8-32 as suggested by another poster. You can always go bigger, but its darned hard to reduce the hole size!

    Also there is VERY LITTLE depth available for the holes, so don't over do it and drill into the inside of the bead area. There are special "bottoming taps" for heli-coils that allow you to drill less deep holes since the nose of the tap is flat and it doesn't have the point that a standard tap has. You tap it forst with the pointed tap, and then finish the hole with the bottoming tap.

    There are special short coils for very shallow holes. I'd recommend you don't buy a generic set from an autoparts store, as they will only have the longer coils and the standard tap.

    Many industrial supply houses have taps, drills, and coils separately.
