Trim rings

Has anyone had the problem of the trim rings spinning and rubbing on the valve stems? i am worried about the the rings cutting the valve stem.

Re: Trim rings

The OEM trim rings had multiple spring attachment clips, and once they were snugged down they won't move. The more recent after market rings have four clips that really bite into the wheel. Mine have never moved. Once they are clipped on they are very tight.
I have yet to hear of anyone having a trim ring snap a valve stem from rotation.

Re: Trim rings

I must have orriginal ones they have the multiple clips, They twist enough when driving awhile to lay the valve stem over. I may add that only the rears do it.
