Swatmann888 - there is no way of putting a stainless lip on a CSL and I agree it would kill the look of the wheel

You could however paint a ring (any color)on the outer edge of a powdercoated wheel such as this....

We can paint a bright silver pin stripe on a black wheel if you like. Look very similar.
