Rims & Caps

Just got my rims back from the painter and they turned out good. I had to test fit my hubcaps to see how they look. I just need to take them now and get some new rubber for them.

Re: Rims & Caps

To help preserve those nice rims get the sticky balancing weights, you're rim edges will thank you.

That is a good idea. I will make sure I request those for these rims too.

They look great. I hope the new paint doesn't get messed up taking them off to mount.

How's that? I mean, how do the traditional bead-mount weights hurt the rim? I never noticed anything bad.
