How to stretch a tire... and how you don't.
First time we had to use fire to make a tire stretch out.
Stretching 195/45R15s on 9Jx15 BBS RMs.

DIY: Wrapping Rims in Matte Black Vinyl
I wanted to try a new style for my winter rims, and instead of pinting them
i wrapped them in vinyl, Costs about $10 a rim.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/321097538225 This short video shows you how to wrap
a rim quickly(sped up 3x), There really is no downfall to doing this, faster and cheaper then painting, the
vinyl only weighs .4 ounces or about 50 grams. and thats spread out
throughout the rim and if you dont like it then just peal it off. If you
want more info or you want to buy some vinyl contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org Or come contact me at 8thcivic.com please don't send a
message though youtube, I don't come here often.
