LOL Well not really off topic title says Got Pain WHAT NEXT LOL I prefer dying cause it soaks into plastic so if you hit a rock and it dings rim its stll same color but if you paint and hit rock paint flakes off and you see a white spot


And you dont need to strip them these were chrome rpm claws all i did was dye them right out of the package dyed chrome looks awesome

fine, any way to fix it, I say the only real way (other than havin me get her another) is to file the openings to work?? er, how do you mark it so this doesn't happen again, and FYI it didn't have the hole dimples
