Hey should I paint the part that is attached to the caliper? You know the balck part that loops around or should I just paint the gray part. What do you think?

I did both and looks great. My wheels look a lot like yours. Are those stickers on the center of the wheels? I have the stickers. How do the stickers do when you wash them?

Did you have a hard time putting the wheel covers back on? I did and I'm not a moron but I had the hardest time. They didn't fit as good as before. It seems like that they differ from front to rear, right?

The front and rear wheel covers are different because the wheels are different.

Freeze, how can you tell the difference between the two. I have taken them off a lot at autocross races and noticed sometimes that they don't seem to fit just right. By the way, greetings from Costa Rica! Leaving this nice place this morning to hit the jungle roads to the beach. c ya!

Wheels

:) :) :)

On the inside of each wheel cover is a little cast-in image of a valve stem. The cover is to be put on with the image toward the valve stem in the wheel. They fit the best when done this way.

I also numbered the inside of each wheel cover and the wheel so I can keep them together.

:cool :cool :cool

Those are stickers on the bowtie on the wheels. They are a thin vinyl material. I heated the wheel cover and the vinyl just a bit before applying the sticker. By putting on a little pressure whlie they cooled, they stick much better. They are very thin and I have had no problem with washing. You can barely feel them when you run your finger over the sticker.

I bought as a suggestion a tire removal tool for bicycles, to remove the tire hub covers. 3 in a package for 5$ and I gave one to my dealer told him also about lining up the valve stems, I like the numbers idea and will have to do that. Now what do I put on the normal rust to make them look pretty when I take off the covers? I should have done something before so I wouldn't have to mess with the rust. Good suggestion for new owners.
