Personally I've never had to do that. As is, I didn't know that you could. Also, if you can find the steel lining that fits, one would have to weigh the cost and trouble of getting the old one out and the new one in over simply replacing the wheel itself.

Just my two cents...lol
Keep the rubber side down out there ;)
Speed never hurt anyone. It's the sudden stop at the end that does :o

I'd guess you'd need to replace the wheel as there's no practical way to fix yours. :oops:

Have you tried getting a brake shop to reline the shoes with thicker material?
