pro-tip: don't ceramic coat the barrels until the wheels have been balanced. Had problems in the past with the weights not sticking.
I've done it for a customer on something like 10 sets of wheels and he's never had a problem. They knew I'd coated them, said they haven't had any issues either. So hopefully I'll be good.

This is a rational senior citizen perspective.


not that I disagree, frankly. My 275/35/19 tires on my lowered M3 do not give the most comfy ride my near 50 year old arse desires.
Cincinnati has horrible roads and this is the car I usually take there. 20 gallon tank and comfortable seats.

Just because some of y'all like to drive around on rubber band tires and heavy ass wheels doesn't mean everyone does. 235/50/17 tires and they've 600 miles on them. Roads here kinda suck so having some sidewalk smooths the ride.
i had 30 series on a set of 20s on my old bmw, i had to have my wheels straightened once a year bc of how even a man hole cover would bend them without having a sidewall. I’m throughly enjoying having 50 series tires on my new SUV
