In this case, you might need to repeat the installation procedure from the beginning. (You also might need to get one of our special tools.)
TIRE MODEL THAT PUSHES RIM RINGZ™ OUT
In some very rare cases, Rim Ringz™ will just look like it does not fit all the way, although it seems to be installed correctly. If you try to pull it with your fingers from the rim and you can’t – then it will not fall off while driving.
In this case Rim Ringz™ might fall off. Check if your tires are in accordance with the recommended size for your rims.
OUTSIDE BALANCING WEIGHT
You will have to replace it with the type of balancing weight that sticks to the inside of your rim.
SOME DENTS OR BUMPS ON THE TIRE WHERE THE RIM RINGZ™ HOOKS GO
This means that the tire did not sit correctly over the Rim Ringz™ hooks. It means that the hook didn’t let the tire fit perfectly onto its normal position. In this case, re-install Rim Ringz™: Jack up your car, release the air from the tire, push the tire maximally inwards (in places where you saw the dents earlier), while pushing Rim Ringz™ towards the rim, so that when you release the pressure the tire goes over the hooks.
Alternatively, use our tool (Rim Ringz™Tool 1) and insert it between the tire and the rim (in places where you saw the dents earlier), pull it upwards while pushing Rim Ringz™ towards the rim. When you pull out the tool, the tire should fit nicely over the teeth on the hooks and it should not push it inwards.
LOOSING THE AIR IN TIRES
If you notice that somewhere your tire releases the air, and did not experience this problem before, then your tire had not been mounted to the rim correctly in the first place. Double-check to make sure that the tire’s position is correct. If this not the problem, then check to see if your tire is damaged somewhere. You will need to go to your tire specialist to install your tire correctly. Once the tire is installed correctly, then you can install Rim Ringz™.
ONE RIM RINGZ™ RING IS BROKEN OR DAMAGED
You can purchase a single Rim Ringz™ ring. You don’t have to purchase the whole set.
IMPROPER RIMS AND TIRES
Also, with repaired rims, low-cost foreign rims or replica rims, what can happen is that the dimensions of those rims could be different from the standard rim size and therefore certain deviations could occur. Old tires and low-quality tires made from a lot of plastic can cause deformities in places where the hooks should be located. Because those tires are rigid, the air from the tires may be released when you install Rim Ringz™. To fix this, move the hooks a few inches from that place and just push and press the tire on the place where the air is released.
According to Rolla’s research, the most common problem is the different tire dimensions.
