Default Powder coated my rims! Thanks Lance!

Had Lance powder coat my rims a couple weeks back and finally got some pictures of them. I went with a close to stock bbs gold color but with
some flake in it. It's hard to see the flake in the pics, but when the sun hits them they look nuts. I'm very happy with how they turned out.

Thanks! And my brembos scratch off stick weights...I don't like it either. I can thank discount tire for all the paint missing and scratches on my calipers.

Wheel weights on the outer lip FTW.

It's not a show car. It's a DD/Rally car. Lol.
But seriously, clip-on weights are the best way to keep a wheel balanced.
You know this. Plus, stick on weight + Brembo is not fun.

I worked for subaru for a while, they have very thin weights they use on the inside that stick, and I've never seen them hit. Go to a subaru dealer for a balance. I think its only 15 bucks.... Those weights make your wheels look tacky. Other than that the paint job looks awesome.

If you guys have all been able to get rid of the clip on weight, post pictures please. Neither Suby C nor I have seen a way for this to work.

The stick on weight must be VERY thin. Definitely not normal stick on weights.
But none the less. DO SHARE!!!

Clip on weights are the devil!

when u get the tires balanced, ask them to use a single stick on weight in the center. They always did it for me on my Prodrives. One time some kid was just about to put a clip on weight and damage the finish. I ran in and said "these wheels are 850 each, im sure u dont wana pay for one when u damage the finish with that ghetto clip. get a stick on and do it right". The kid was a bit mad that i told him how to do his job, but keept my rims looking purrty.

That's what were trying to say, we balance these wheels on our own at Weber State. We do not have these "Thin weights". All we have are the bigger ones that tear up his calipers. We did not pay anyone to do these, so how do we balance them with a clip on on the inside and a sticky on the outside? I do not like balancing wheels with only 1 plain. They need to be balanced with a Dynamic setup to truly save tire wear and prevent wheel vibrations. Not static.

So I ask again, can someone please post information on the sticky weights that are more slim than the run of the mill stick weights. Does only Subaru stock them? Is this the only way to get rid of the outside clip weight? I've done many dynamic balances with an inside clip-on and outside sticky.

Ryan: If paying Subaru is the only way to go, talk to Mr. Jackson and he'll help out this weekend.

I worked at a Subaru dealer and we didn't have any of these super thin stick weights. But i'll keep an eye out for some.
