Re: Got some new shoes for the jeep!

Are those black or the chrome polished black?

Re: Got some new shoes for the jeep!

The overall finish is pretty good. Looking up close I've found a few minor imperfections as I was wiping them down, but nothing that really concerned me. Overall I'm happy with the purchase. The other nice little detail, is they choose the hidden weight balancing process, so all of the wheel weights are hidden behind the spokes. It just makes everything look a little cleaner. The wheels are gloss black.

Word. Thanks!

*And to put the outside clip wheel weights on those would be a sin. Very glad they didn't go that route instead.

Well this wheel won't even accept the clip on weights. What I was referring to is some of the higher end wheel balancers have a mode where you can tell the machine exactly where the spokes on the wheel are, and then it will spit the weight up so they are completely hidden behind the spoke as opposed to just sticking it anywhere visible on the inner drum of the wheel.

Woah, that's fancy. I've never seen it done that way before.

Thanks for explaining.
