Rims Information


Before mounting:
Perform a test fitting of the rims on the car BEFORE fitting tires.
Check that there is clearance for brakes, steering components and bodywork.
Testing should take place on both the front and rear axles and on both sides, tolerance from car manufacturers may vary. Before test mounting, all the car's hub flanges / contact surfaces must be completely cleaned.
Check that the car's contact surfaces are completely level and that any guide bolts or grease caps must be removed.
Tension and any centering rings must be tested on both the car and the rim.

 

Tire fitting:
When using metal valves, the valves must be clamped from the back so that damage to the rim's paintwork is avoided.
We recommend using rubber valves with chrome caps, as rubber and aluminum do not wander as metal valves can.
When fitting tires, the rim must be clamped on the outside of the fitting machine with the front facing up.
On special rim types (with deep rim edges), the tire with the back of the rim must face upwards.
Make sure that the mounting tool does not damage the rim.

 

Balancing:
It is only recommended to use self-adhesive balancing weights of zinc, as traditional weights and plastic-coated weights can damage the surface of the rim during mounting.
For subsequent cleaning of the rims, it is recommended that adhesive weights on the outside of the rim be mounted on the inside of the rim star (behind the spokes).
Avoid mounting weights on polished / glossy surfaces.

 

Mounting on car:
Before fitting the rims, all hub collars must be cleaned.
Any bolts for center covers (covers) must also be lubricated.
The attached clamp must be used to attach the rims.
Only if it is stated that original clamping is used, this may be used.
Check that the enclosed clamp and any rim locks correspond to the thread pitch and head size of the original clamp.
If the main size of the fitting deviates from the original dimensions, there should be a wheel wrench in the car that corresponds to the new fitting.
DO NOT use electric or air-powered mounting tools to secure the rims.
The rims must be torque tightened crosswise (110 Nm, unless otherwise stated).

 

After installation:
Check that spare wheel tension is present in the car.
Avoid heavy accelerations and decelerations within the first 200km (until the mounting grease is "burned" away), as this can bring the wheels out of balance.
The rims must be retightened after 200-300 km.
If the main size of the fitting deviates from the original dimensions, there should be a wheel wrench in the car that corresponds to the new fitting.

 


 

Alloy wheel maintenance:
Alloy wheels require maintenance, therefore the rims must be cleaned regularly.
Special brake dust should be removed frequently as this can burn into the surface of the rims with a consequent damage to gloss and polishing.
It is only recommended to use regular car shampoo and a soft sponge / brush.
Steam and pressure cleaners must not be used for cleaning alloy wheels.
The washbasin rim brushes can in some cases damage your alloy wheels. Therefore, it is not recommended to use these (can be deselected in most cases). Rims with polished surfaces require more careful care and maintenance, especially with regard to brake dust. Here it is recommended to clean the rims at least 1-2 times a week.
Polishing with auto wax is recommended!
Chrome rims need to be treated with extreme care and need to be cleaned very often 1-2 times a week.
Chrome rims and brake dust are a bad combination. Therefore, in the case of complaints, we look closely at whether it is due to a lack of cleaning in relation to actual production errors.
Regular treatment with wax significantly facilitates the cleaning of your alloy wheels.
Improper use of the rim cleaner can lead to irreparable damage to the rim's paintwork, which in many cases will only appear several months after use.

 
 

Storage:
When storing your rims / tires, make sure that they are not exposed to direct sunlight.

 

Important:
The rims must be cleaned before they are put away.

If you store the tires with rims, they should preferably be hung up or stacked.
If, on the other hand, the tires are stored without rims, they must be stored upright.
Tires stored without rims are rotated at regular intervals.
