Rims and tires are expensive and as some of us have found out, they can be easily stolen.

Those of us who might be at high risk for this type of crime, may consider printing these notes up and having them placed within the tires. Who knows, if our wheels and tires are stolen, this might just help them find their way back home!

I've tried that before... the danged notes always rip to shreds when you try to shove 'em down through the little valve stem tube... and YES, I took out the little valve-thingy... sheesh.. I'm not that dumb!

What?! awww... man! *slaps head*

Hey, thanks. What would we do without ya? :grin:

(Seriously, though, not a bad idea! Maybe print them on address labels. Would they stick after a while?)

Excellent idea! Perhaps one of the supporting vendors would consider "printing" these on a extremely hi-tac adhesive type of decal so that the true owner can slap 'em on the inside portion of the wheel instead of a simple "note"???? I'd think that would be a better option rather than having a note rolling around inside the wheel all loose and what not. Besides, depending on what the note is printed on, versus an applied decal, it would be subject to the weather extremes, etc

You need to have them put inside the tire before they're mounted, silly. :D
one question.... what happens when condensation occurs within the tire. oxygen inside, especially when cold may condense a bit. pretty much all pressurized air has some moisture to it. wouldnt that ruin the paper? unless it was laminated....:)

it might be easier to engrave em on a part of the wheel to where the tire covers it.

just more ideas for the mix. i;ve heard about engraved plates being attached.

Instead of just putting in the loose paper, why not laminate the note?? Would keep the note in tact. Just a thought

Hahahhaa are you referring to me there?! LOL!!!! :D

I don't know, I was thinking you could use some packaging tape and tape them to the rim, inside the tire..
This is a great idea. My only concern about taping it to the rim inside the tire is that people might have your rims for a long time and never see your message. From what I see/hear etc., the rims and tires get stolen and then sold quickly as one. It is very rare that they will take off the tires and sell just the rim....at least around here. I wonder if they could be put on somewhere on the rim where they are visible even with tires on.

what about an etching like they do with windows? put it right between some of the spokes. might be hard to see at first, but its an idea.

you could also stamp your name to the inside of the wheel or vin number with a stamp and dye kit that they sell at SEARS-OR YOU CAN GO WITH mats IDEA have the labels printed on the same material as the door jam vin/ID sticker.

Do I warn the guy I sold my car to that he might want to pull the tires and have his own note put in them? LOL

I did that with a nice set of rims & tires that I had on my Mustang at one time. I just added to it for the installer to ask for the bill of sale (of rims/car) should the name on the card not match the name of the customer.
