Thank you everybody! I can't wait to get to the inside-----but that's going have to be done be me---sohoping I can do it justice.

I should have listened to Clive (and my husband)----don't think the Baby Moons (which arrived in the mail yesterday) will attach on my particular rims. Dern it! Back to the drawing board.

I've got similar rims and wondered if one could use springs of some sort to go through the holes and hold the baby moons in place. Or somehow modify the bolt covers to hold a baby moon.

Hey Vicki;

I got to thinking, those wheels would look great with some chrome trim rings. I know you have the rim painted a red and you might not want to lose that; if the trim rings were small enough you could still see a band of red inside the chrome!

Just another idea for you!

Clive: how do the rings attach to the wheels???? Plus, I'm thinking about just having shiny bolts and bearings' cover.

After I ordered the baby moons, I wondered how do I check the temp of the bearings every time we stop if they are covered? Seems like a pain in the rear.

Reinhold---I know----can you believe we haven't even had a chance to hook Bean up to the Ridge yet? I'm dying to see what it looks like behind the black truck! We have to measure and get the right hitch---always something!

Vickie, they are usually just a "friction fit". There are tabs on the inside that when the beauty/trim ring is pressed into the wheel, they compress and hold the ring on. Those tabs can scratch the paint though, so watch for that if you don't want to damage the paint on your wheels and if you are not certain that you want that look; if you take them off you may have small scratches. Not a problem if you leave them on of course.

The rings can be found ranging from chromed plastic to polished stainless.

I think the rings would complement the chrome nuts and bearing covers very nicely!

Looking forward to more pics!
