About Wheel Outer Lip
Hot rodding is a hobby where you take your car and build it from the ground up. While started in the early 1950s, the culture still continues to exist in styles such as stanced or lowered chassis cars where a wheel's outer lip is one of the primary focuses of its design. Bigger lips are used on race cars to allow for wider tires. The deep dish wheels are usually lightweight, one-piece units that are able to be mounted inside the wheel well of the race car. After "The Fast and The Furious" movies, the style exploded into the mainstream. Japanese imports, European models, and domestic cars all followed increased lip designs to mimic the aggressive appearance of a race car. The wheel's outer lip is held in place with lip-bolts. These bolts are customizable by shape, size, and color. Lips are also available in differing sizes. The most common range between 2 to 4 inches deep. Each lip is accessible with different finishes, such as painted, powder-coated, or polished. There is a large inventory of wheel outer lips available on eBay.
