How does the stretch look like and what about the fender roll, camber kit and suspension setup? I want something really similar to your set-up. Thanks for your answer!

I desided to take a chance this weekend and see how hard to remove the"bling" lip sheild that is krimpted on the 009 wheels I purchased awhile back. The cover sits about 1/4 inch above the wheel cast. The wheel is fully powdercoated underneath. With a steady hand and a dremel, they can be removed with minimal to no scratches. Now for the photo's.

Before:




The part removed:

After cleaning the inside of the wheel shell and rotating the tires, the finished product:
