PRO TIPS

  • Grab Some Rubbing Alcohol

    Our kit includes some alcohol wipes, but they won't do the job if your wheels are more than a little bit dirty. We recommend getting a bottle of rubbing alcohol (or an alcohol-based cleaner) and cleaning your wheels as carefully as possible before using the included alcohol wipes.

  • A Little Bit Of Adhesive Promoter is All You Need

    Adhesive promoter is kind of like cologne or body spray - a little bit goes a long way. We provide just two packages of adhesive promoter with a set of Rim Trim because we don't want you to put all the adhesive promoter you can on one wheel. Instead, split the adhesive promoter across two wheels, and apply it in a thin, even layer.

  • When In Doubt, Push As Hard As You Can

    Once you've cleaned the wheels very thoroughly and your thin layer of adhesive promoter is tacky, it's time to apply the Rim Trim. Be sure to go slow, and to apply steady pressure to every inch of Rim Trim. Even a tiny air bubble is enough to weaken the bond between the wheel and the Rim Trim. So, be sure to push!
