These are the wheels I got my eyes on (in the 19" format)

First order of business is de-badge/badge. lol ...  Removed all badges from the rear and put an R-Design badge on the right hand side back and place an R-Design on the dash right under the buttons and one right on the shifter.

Definitely the top niche wheels if you change them. the wheels on the car are already nice

Yeah the stock ones are pretty good so we'll see if I change them or not. Certainly not in a hurry with that

I agree... Don't rush on that.. Those stock wheels are very nice. That's one thing I like about my wheels.. They are actually good looking from the factory and make it stand out

I like them for my car.

 

They are just like the Breytons I was looking at.

BTW, here is a tip I got from a detail youtuber video. Always place your microfibers and fluids together in a zip lock bag and place all the extra micro cloths in bags as well. Keeps everything organized and most importantly keeps them from collecting dust inside your closet. That way you dont use those micro towels that have been collecting dust inside the closet on your paint and then ruin your car.

Tip, check to see how they fit the surface first before you remove the backing. I realized mine needed bent to fit flat and the tape to stick good.

Rubbing alcohol did not clean the surface good enough for a strong adhesion. I used painters prep solvent to remove all wax.

To promote adhesion, you can also use a hair dryer to warm up the glue.

Hopefully it's labeled as 3M tape. Cross your fingers if not. One day I walked into the garage and scattys grille badge had fallen off and I found it on the floor. I remounted it with 3M tape and so far, it's still on there.

I store mine in plastic totes.

Thanks and big thanks on the tip as well. I actually decided to put it on the license plate instead cause I liked the clean look better. And yes, it was not 3M so I have to check on it and see how it's holding up tomorrow and take it off and replace it with 3M if it's not holding up

End it up doing this instead. Liked the clean look of the sides better.

Looks good but I hope that just a shadow on the license frame and not a stain to the right of the badge
