Push hard enough to pop them out. The prongs won't break.

^ what he said about center caps. Just push them hard from behind, and they'll pop out.

Can you weigh those wheels please?

ok, i'll try to do it tommorow.

edit: by the way, i was looking at a 911 porsche today, it had some bbs wheels. Then i went home and looked at my wheels in the garage. Man, they are really nice. It really looked a lot like the bbs i saw on the 911.

They are not mounted yet. I'm thinking to wait till my h&r springs come in, and then do everything together. I don't want to look "high watering" for even one day. i have standard suspension, not sport pack.

it kinda sucks what happened today. My rims were lined up in my garage, not stacked because i was worried of scratching the wheels. my dad comes over and kicks one down because it was in his way. And he happens to kick the front, 235 series with no rim protection. Yup, I got scratches around several parts of the wheels outer radius. Looks like very slight curb rash! i'm so pissed. Then he said, "are you going to drive with them or put them for show in a museum?" I got even more pissed. Then I went and kicked his 2004 LS430 3 times (in the bumper, not sheetmetal) and then said, you think this is going in a museum.

yeah yeah, it was immature, but he didn't need to kick the rim down. damn. Anyways, how should I store them until i get my springs in? if i stack them, u think that will scratch the outer lip?

Sorry that happened to you, that sucks. The best way to store rims is to stack them. When your setup came, did it come with cardboard cutouts for the face of the rims? Use that and some towels or just towels between the rims.

No stacking them isn't going to hurt them, just put cardboard pieces between each wheel(use the cardboard they sent the rims with if you haven't thrown them away yet.)

Pretty much any rim is gonna take a hit if it falls on it's outside edge. What surface did it fall on? Concrete will rash for sure. The tile like you have in the pictures shouldn't leave the same type of marks concrete does. Remember, the rims and tires mounted up are pretty heavy, anything that heavy will not fall without damage, unless it's on grass or carpet.

LOL. He got OWNED.

but you must be spoiled. I do that to my dad, my rims would be used as BBQ grille, and my legs won't function for awhile.

u guys know how long i've spent looking for the perfect wheels. that was wrong to do that to me.

in any case, i did feel bad after i did it. i went back and checked, thankfully no dent, no scratches. again, i kicked the bumper area, not the sheetmetal (and didn't kick my hardest anyway)
