    Maybe this is a dumb question, sorry if it is. How do you do/get the red stipe around the wheel lip. Is it painted on/ adhesive stipe/ aftermarket strip/ or on the wheel as purchased? I have those Nitto TG's and those look like Konig CS offroads and I have not see that as an option on those. (stole the pic from iamrayzian's build)

    It wouldn't be super hard to paint it on.

    There is the odd wheel that has a stripe, but most will be custom. I have always loved the way the stripe looks, especially red. If you had a steady hand you could probably do it yourself, but chances are it will turn out better if you take it somewhere and have it masked/sprayed on.

    Thats from my Old 16' Konig Countersteers

    Its a kit from Pep Boys for $14.99


    I've had people ask me where I got them custom painted at. They look like paint and actually if done right. They will look better. Its Red with a nice clear coat on top that makes it look like paint.


    1. Clean off the rims surface with alcohol.

    2. You'd need to leave your truck out direct Sunlight for 1-2hrs in 80+degree weather to heat up the rims.

    3. Then carefully apply it on.

    If you take the rims off with a heat gun. That will be much better.



    Here it is on my 17's

    With a little patience it can be done with adhesive vinyl. I did it this way on my motorcycle. They came out perfect.
