TRD Beadlock wheel question

Anyone know if the TRD Beadlock wheels can be used without the polished trim ring? I'm interested in using them just like in this picture, with no trim ring. Just not sure if the trim ring is functional or just for looks.
My guess after looking at pics of the wheel is that the trim ring is just for looks.

Anyone know for sure?

Thanks!

It's just decoration. I had them on for a week and decided I liked them better without the rings.

Hey thanks guys!!

I think they look great without the rings. Makes the wheels look like they are a bigger diameter as well.

I would suggest putting the screws in to protect the threads, and they may look better.

Yeah, if I go with these, without the rings, I would get some pan head stainless steel, or black screws to thread into the holes.

There's a few in my profile but none that really show the wheels. Been nasty weather wise here lately, I'll get a few more up soon.
