    Wheel stripes

    I know you've all seen the time attack wheels with a red rim and Wedsport SA-70 wheels with blue. There are companies that make vinyl stripes for wheels, but I have no idea how to measure for exact sizing and each wheel is different.

    Because you have nice expensive wheels. :D

    My wheels would look badass with white wheel stripes to match the color of my car. White on bronze would be unique. I've seen blue on my exact wheels. I'm currently inquiring on the exact size. Can someone photoshop this pic as white? :)

    not really.. they didn't cost that much.

    I think white would look weird, red or blue would be best. The should be pretty simple to make with a 24" or larger vinyl cutter. Just need the outer and inner diameters.

    Yeah, perhaps. I think blue just like above. :) Red would be alright, but it's not the same on bronze as on black. I think blue is better, but a darker blue than above.

    Actually, the wheels are the same. I just don't have the center caps on mine. LOL The top one has the blue stripes on it already. :) I think blue looks best. I just need the size now.

    this is kinda hard, so i guess the vinyl will just be a longgggg stripe and u would have to apply heat to make it form into a circle shape without any bendings, etc.

    and for each wheel its different on its particular size, (how long/thick the vinyl should be, etc.)

    its probably easier to just buy a roll of vinyl on ebay and cut it up urself
    ive been thinking of doing something simliar to my future white rims...but painting the wheel lip red instead, now i realized u can just vinyl it =D


    besides, it should be too hard, i found a DIY for it

    Thats an awesome idea. I think I might do it in red, because I have some black Heliums. Plus the red will match my calipers.
