Yeah, They're staying on... I took the cheap way out for a new look & got some 'ports for Xmas...got to start wrestling them on soon.
Decided to put the Atlas Portawalls on ( 2" wide ones )
break the bead ( saw a pic online and thought I'd try it....IT WORKS )
rough up the inside of the rim so it 'grips' the portawall a little better
( I put the wheel back on so it was more stabil to work on )
clean up the mess
lay the wheel down, tuck in the port' by hand (some instructions say to "deflate the tire and pound in the port' with a rubber mallet".....well, by breaking the bead made it a little less Neanderthal )
center the port' with the rim, reinflate the tire, deflate the tire and push port' in a bit more ( my back tire port' creeped out slightly; 'seating the bead' gave it a bit more friction to hold the portawall in place before the final inflation.
one side done
'Well, they sure are white!!!'
I have to see the bug outside, but I think they'll grow on me.
couple shots my girlfriend took of your kids and car at the show - facebook crapped their quality up some, but oh well! i'll see if i can get her to upload them to flickr or something.
