Sorry about the nomaclature that I used...
Around here, we always called them split rims because of the ring that's split.

Are these not the rims that have to be put in a safety cage or looped with chains?

I don't have a pic, but I found one online like the rims I have.

Good enough for me, 7269 miles, super clean, fresh paint, new batteries, and everything seems pretty proper, knuckle deep tread, stored indoors with no dry rot...

Downside, split rim wheels missing spare, sketchy air solenoid for door(or it's smarter than me), and one busted taillight lens.
i took my door out if you need any of the parts. nice bus

On a Dayton type wheel the RIM is not split, it is still one piece, just
separate from the center. The center is bolted into the rim.

A Budd wheel is like a car with the center welded into the rim.

Good pictures and explanation of split rims here. Not the picture at
the top of the page.

Couldn't get your image to show but they sound like Safety Ring or Locking Ring rims which have a one piece but split ring on the outside edge of the rim. Yes, they do need to be handled with respect, but there are still a lot of them around and any big-rig tire shop should know how to handle them. They MUST be fully deflated before attempting to pull the ring (a bitch). And because of the remaining mechanical tension, many (but not all) will wrap the ring with chain before popping them out. Most smart shops do all their big tire work in a safety cage.

True, old style "split rims" are extremely hazardous to work on and most shops simply will not deal with them at all these days.

Good image, info & description here...

Funny you should mention the door....
Came straight home from work and got the wrenches out and took off the guide roller on the big door window, and the screws holding the guide going to the air piston... And was looking to see if I could flip the piano hinge on the furthest forward side and make the door solid opening outward...

So far, the only thing holding me back is what I can do with that piano hinge. I'll dig a little deeper after the sun sets!
98° today!

Did I mention I can sit in the cooled down hot tub and touch my bus for reassurance!

Great news from Oklahoma Tag Agent today....

She looked at the picture of the title, saw it was from Arkansas... She said "since it's coming in from out of state, I'll title it as a motorhome"
