Dale, thanks for the input, I think I follow you and see it somewhat in the pics you sent me in the follow up post. Once I get a welder, I'll most likely fab some up to see how they work.
I have also heard of guys setting the rims on really LARGE metal funnels, turned upside down, so that center hole of the wheel, rests on the cone of the funnel. This would lay them flat in the oven.
