Trim Rings

Trim rings are car accessories that can be installed on top of your car’s wheels. They are commonly used to cover dented, scraped, or scuffed rim lips. On the other hand, some car owners use them to beautify their car’s wheels. And that is why they are also called beauty rings. These rings can be made up of plated steel or ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), which is a type of plastic.

Installing beauty rings is almost the same as installing hub caps. First, make sure that the wheels you are going to place these rings on are suited for them. Steel wheels manufactured after 1974 have a high chance of being capable of wearing universal trim rings.

If the wheel can be fitted with a trim ring, then you can just easily snap those rings on to it. Just place the trim ring on top, and then push it forward to the wheel. You do not need hammers or any kind of tools to lock the rings on the wheels. You can just smack it with the side of your hand.

Using tools such as hammers or even rubber mallets will only damage the ring and it can put a dent on your rim lips. Some trim rings have stiff clips. If yours is like that, you can put some grease on the clips to make it slide easier to the rim.

To remove the rings, get a flat blade screwdriver. Push the screwdriver on the clips near the center of the ring and let them unclip.

 

Both legacy and future of Hubcaps and Wheel Covers

Wheel Covers and Hubcaps

Wheel Covers and Hubcaps

Hubcaps and Wheel Covers have been around since about the time the last wheel was installed on a vehicle and function had just been created and now led the way for form. While vehicles have once been built for the sole purpose of transporting said owner from point A to point B this is no longer the case. Along with our 14 Air bags, 7 cup holders, 5 USB ports, Bluetooth, and media docking center we have seem to have always been accustomed to great looks as well. While the ideal car and the dream car rarely cross paths we must learn to compromise with both our desires and our pocket books. This is where hubcaps and wheel covers come in. While many people enjoy their luxury cars with big fancy wheels and gas guzzling engines the rest of the world needs to stretch their money just a bit further. Hubcaps can give you the look of fancy wheels without the harsh price tag and wheel covers have come a long way of really changing the look of an automobile for a fraction of the alternative options.
