Trim Ring

I bought a rallye wheel for my spare tire in order to match the rest of the wheels and tires (MCA requires tires to match). It would look better with the brushed trim ring. Does anyone have an extra one around they would like to sell me. Driver quality....not looking for perfection. I just need one - PM me. Thanks, Casey

The spare tire/ wheel did not have a trim ring or center cap. MCA rules require the tire to be the same as the 4 tires on the car.

Danny, you are correct. When MCA judged they told me it was the tire that mattered - the wheel does not have to match. I just decided to add a matching wheel for looks. Casey

My Garage
Casey,
I have an old wheel trim ring that you can have. It's not 100% correct but the price is right. If your interested send me an e-mail and I'll send you a photo.

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.

Thanks everyone for your help. I finally bought a used one off ebay yesterday for $12 plus shipping. Always appreciate your inputs. Casey
