Product appears to be aimed at owners of high performance vehicles with thick wallets.

Lug-centric balancing simply means mounting the wheel (with tire) on the balancing machine with a suitable adapter so it is located by the lug bolt holes, not the centre bore. It should not cost significantly more than a standard balance, because it only take a couple more minutes to do the job properly, and the adapter is not an expensive tool.

No modern competently built high-performance vehicle would have lug-centric wheels. Cheap trailer hardware is nearly the only remaining application of lug-centric wheel mounting.

I emailed Recstuff and they do lug centric balancing at $9.99 per tire with tire and wheel purchase.

Yeah I saw that they didn't have the lines. Interesting because all of the Dexstar spoke models and even the same Mini Mod model in a different size (15x5 w/ 5 on 5 bolt pattern) have the stripes.

According to the Dexstar product catalog the colour code for white with stripes is "12", so for instance a 15"X6" with 5-on-4.5" in the eight-spoke is Dexstar part 017-149-xx, so in white with stripes it's 017-149-12. It appears to be available, and cheap. White with stripes is not the same colour code as white without stripes.

Brian: He is trying to match the Escape originals which are the Mini-Mod in white not the Eight-Spoke model. 017-232-12?

Good catch - I should have used a more appropriate example, but yes, that's how the part numbering works.

Well... I guess I'm not opposed to switching to a different style wheel (maybe a spoke type Dexstar) so all 4 wheels match if the price is right.
NOTHING IS EASY!!!

I put on custom wheels the day after I took delivery. I have the original stock wheels in my garage. I don't know what the delivery cost would be, but they are here if you are interested!

Thanks... I would appreciate that. I think I will check out shipping cost from your location to SoCal. I can PM you later.
Take care

Sounds like a road trip to me, perhaps once the border restrictions are relaxed.

New wheels and tires

I had bought some chrome center caps, but they were much bigger. They snapped on the wheels ok, but they stuck out at least 2 to 3 inches further. Did not look good at all.
