Is that the style with jack screws (for lack of a better term) at each rail? If so, then yes, I think you loosten the nuts as far as you can, all the way around the rim.

Yep, best I remember, that"s what you do. Back each jack screw down as far as it"ll go, then the rim should be clear of them & come off. Did that nearly 20 yrs. ago when calcium rusted one out on my 8000.
