: it looks really nice. I do agree with JonM that it does not have the "finished" look of a factory wheel, but it is about 95% there IMO, and when you consider the cost factor its no contest. It does enlarge the wheel a lot I feel and does not take long to install (about 1 hour). I had a lot of people like it in the Upgrade Corral at HC99.

I agree completely. I installed an all black wheelskin on my POS commuter car and it looks almost OEM. The only negative is the interface with the steering wheel spokes where you must leave open thread holes and the generic shape of the wheelskin fails to transition onto the spokes smoothly. I have elected not to put one on my ///MZ3 since I don't want to cover up the colored stitching. I do agree that a thicker wheel would be nice.
