I'm not sure what you're after John, but it shouldn't be too much trouble. The length of time they've been there won't necessarily make any difference. Just make sure that the wheel is well supported as close to the axle as you can get, preferably on the boss, so as not to strain the wheel casting when the pressure gets on.
