FAQs

How do I know if my rims are suitable for Rimskins™?

Our research shows that 80% of the mag wheels on the market are suitable for Rimskins. They require a minimum flat surface of 8mm around the perimeter of the rim. If you have wheel with old style external wheel weight fitment, it is possible that they will not fit. The suitability of the wheel is the responsibility of the buyer, not Rimskins. If you are having difficulty deciding, feel free to send a photo of your wheel for our professional advice.
