Install Trim Rings to Make Your Car More Fashionable
If you want to make your car look classier, it is best that you install trim rings on its wheels. These rings are simple car accessories that you can install on top of your car’s wheels. They can protect your rim from any damage such as scratches, scuffs, and dents. Also, if your rim lips are already damaged, these rings can hide the imperfections.
There are three popular types of trim rings. First is the stainless steel type. Second is the chrome steel type. And third is the ABS plastic type.
Trim rings are available for almost any car wheel size. Their size ranges from 13” up to 18”. When getting one, make sure that you measure your car’s wheel first since it is normal that there are some tire and wheel manufacturers who deviate from the standard wheel sizes.
Installing these rings does not need a professional. You can do it yourself as long as you have a car jack and air compressor. Also, you do not need to remove the tires of your car. All you need to do is jack up your tires one at a time, deflate them one by one, and snap the rings on.
By the way, pushing them with your hands alone is enough for the rings’ clips to lock on to your wheels. Using hammers will only damage the rings and if you got bad aim, you might put a dent on your wheels also.
On the other hand, cleaning them is a breeze. You can just use regular car wash soap and an old rag to remove the dirt from its surface. However, do not use soaps that contain acid. It will easily damage the rings, especially if the rings are made from ABS.
