March 14, 2011Gentlemen, I swapped trucks and am now running an 02 Ranger. It has these cheesy plastic chrome rim covers, on 2 wheels. I could buy 4 new ones for around $240, or paint the wheels myself. I have no doubt I could prep and paint them well. My only fear would be other guys: balancing tires and hammering the lead weights on, rotating. Really anyone handling my truck except me. Anyone have stories or tips? You can always "ask" them to use the sticky weights or put them on the inside, but sometimes they "forget". I saw a lead on powder coating for $80/wheel, but that`s more than new rim covers.
hope you guys can help, this place seems to be very
