One of the rear rims on my Ford 4000 has a hole rusted through around the stem. Can a patch be welded in and a new hole be drilled elsewhere? The rest of the rim looks good from the outside.

Thanks Doug

At the link is where I repaired a rim from my Dorf 961. I was working the second shift at the time and when I finished it up I didn't have my camera with me. After it was welded in and ground smooth it was not detectable. Cut a patch of good steel from a badly rusted rim from the same that I received from a friend.

common repair to stitch in a patch or weld a washer over the area..

remember you must dismount the tire first!

If there is enough metal there to weld a patch there then yes you can. I welded a patch over a valve stem hole just to move the hole to the outside of the rim instead of having the valve stem on the back side of the wheel.

Certainly a professional looking repair TJ. I don't imagine I would get the same results with my welding ability. I think I will patch the hole and drill elsewhere.

Here are pictures of repair I made to rim on my MF 230
I cut out bad area and put in a 2x3 inch patch across the cutout area at an angle, and heated each end to taper it to match original as best I could trying to keep a flat area for stem to seat on

Yes. Just get the hole at the same angle as the original.
