Dmb Overlays For Wheels

17 posts in this topic

Hi, has anyone has issues fitting dmb overlays to the streetpack 17 alloys? I ordered 55mm however they don't exactly cover the edges of the old badge

I did mine with 55mm and they are fine,did you warm them up before you fit them? That way they stretch a little.

Yeah warmed them all up before applying them, how much did you have to stretch them?

Not much to be honest I took the centre caps out of the wheels which made it a but easier then warmed the gel and the cap with the wife's hair dryer and smoothed them on pushing the gel from the middle outwards

Yeah I've contacted them however their response was not the greatest they was almost implying I need a custom size made, so i thought I'd check on here if people had managed to fit them

Have you put them on the wheels yet? Think that looks normal but you don't really see it when it's flush in the center of the wheel.

You can still a little of the blue on mine but as stated once on not really that noticeable, yours do look to have more showing than mine however.

By the way love the wheels what colour is it?
