Hi all,

I'm in need of some help.

I have recently purchased a set of black Nismo R34 Z-Tune wheels to go onto my AutoArt Skyline R34. However, the wheels have the original stubs / pins stuck in the hole, as per the attached photo.

Any idea's on how to remove them as I would like to keep the wheels rotating when fitted. There doesn't appear to be enough sticking out to attach some pliers to pull it out.

I did think drill a hole but I don't want to risk that.

Thanks

Andrew

Heat it up with a lighter for 5 seconds or so. Grab it with the pliers and gently rotate it out. When I say rotate I mean pull at the same time

Can't see your pics, but it sounds like the brake hub bit is stuck on the wheels. You'll have to remove that using Wes' method and then you'll have access to push the pin out from the other side.

Pretty much what Wes wrote here, the brake hub is usually on quite strong and it's easy to deform it.
