    Re: Rim Coating Process

    BudgeetPlan1- That little quip has gotten to be a catchphrase with the people we know IRL...like, every time anything initial-build-related comes up at anybody`s house. For us, it`s one of those "man, you just gotta laugh" (if only to avoid crying ) defense mechanisms.

    Re: Rim Coating Process

    I always try and wait. Not all coatings are the same and some are way slicker than others, which can definitely interfere with the bonding. So on top of the risk of losing a wheel weight they will likely slop up the wheel during the installation. I also find it easier/safer coating the wheels when the rubber is on.

    Just my $02

    RaskyR1- Heh heh, you have me thinking that maybe I`ll just play it by ear Though some of my wheels would be *MUCH* easier to do without tires on `em (and others would be harder). Decisions decisions...

    I just don`t like standing bare wheels up on the lip (usually on cardboard or towels) and you have to be careful they don`t touch. Just a lot less worrying when the tire is on for protection IMO.

    How would the tire on them make it harder to coat other than weight?

    RaskyR1- Good point..my S8`s wheels are convex to the point that you have to be crazy-careful about their faces.

    Maybe I`m just...extreme...about this, but I can`t recall ever resting a bare wheel on anything except multiple layers of towels..not once in my life going back to when I was a kid. And I always keep a hand on when doing that..never trusted one to be freestanding (not with tires on `em either).

    I`ve had lots of wheels where the outer lip doesn`t stand proud of the tire the way a pronounced "outer wheel lip" would. Almost perfectly flush and a huge PIA to keep wheel/tire stuff off the other surface. The BBS ones on the `93 are close enough to being that way that they`re sure a hassle compared to my other wheels...IIRC the Jag`s are like that too, but I haven`t [messed] with it for so long it`s hard to remember. I had a set of Borbets that drove me nuts in this regard.
