After removing the tire you'll see the original hubcab like rim.  I simply cut the dish off of the new rim and made it the same thickness as the original.  :cheers

The pics were hosted on DX.  A couple years ago, we lost a ton of pics.  The ones in this thread are some of those that got lost.  

Sorry, but they're gone for good!

Can someone else post pics of the same process. Also are all the wheels the same for each model or are there differences? I am getting a HWs Lamborghini Murcielago from the West Coast Custom series from a trade and I want to know how to take those gawdy looking bling wheels off and put some different ones on. Any suggestions on how to do it without pics.
