When checking tire size it’s not necessary to measure anything. All tires have a “size series” printed on them that contains the wheel/rim size.

Filed under Brake Caliper Paint, Tips & Tutorials

G2 Brake Caliper Paint Kit For those of you who haven’t seen it yet. G2 has released a short video showcasing just how easy it is to apply G2 Brake Caliper Paint to your brake calipers. The G2 video outlines the steps for applying the paint not only as a brush on, but as a spray on application as well! I have to say the finish of the G2 Brake Caliper Paint is absolutely phenomenal! Especially when it comes to the colors which contain metal fleck like G2 Gold or G2 Silver and the new Limited Edition Mustang Legend Lime Brake Caliper Paint!

If you’re not familiar with the spray on technique it’s definitely worth a watch… Check it out -

The portable aerosol spray can used in the video is actually the same Preval Portable Aerosol Spray Can that we carry. We have actually been recommending the Preval Spray Gun for paint touch ups when you’re doing auto body work, because it lets you use the exact paint that’s on the car. So it eliminates comparing paint swatches to different spray cans.

With Preval, you get perfect color matching every time. With no streaks, either, making it perfect for applying G2 Brake Caliper Paint!

It seems we aren’t the only ones who think it’s a perfect match… G2 thinks it’s a perfect match as well!

As always, thanks for your continued support of HubcapsPlus and if you have any questions or comments I’m always here!

Safety should be your first priority any time you get behind the wheel, but let’s be honest… Even though safety may be your first priority, you can’t control the other guy.

Muth signal mirrors can help prevent lane-changing and merging accidents

Muth signal mirrors can help prevent lane-changing and merging accidents

Thankfully, Muth Mirror Systems has introduced an innovative accessory for vehicles that helps drivers to ensure the safety of their family. Muth signal mirrors use high intensity lights to change ordinary exterior rearview mirrors into safety features that command attention.

When a turn signal is activated, a flashing chevron appears in the corresponding side mirror to alert drivers in the blind spot. However, the mirrors appear as regular sideview mirrors when the turn signals are not activated.

Many accidents are caused by lane-changing, freeway merging or front-to-rear pileups. Muth signal mirrors are at the eye level of adjacent vehicles and are more noticeable than conventional tail lights. With the increased popularity of trucks, SUVs and mini-vans and the use of those vehicles for towing, the signal from a side mirror may be the only indication drivers a few car lengths back have of the intentions of the vehicle ahead. Tail lights may be hidden by these taller vehicles or by what is being towed.

Muth signal mirrors are available as retrofit package kits

Muth signal mirrors are available as retrofit package kits.

The LED display used in Muth signal mirrors lights up faster than regular incandescent lamps in tail lights. This accounts for a difference of 17 feet at 65 m.p.h. By alerting drivers in the blind spot of the vehicle equipped with Muth Signal® mirrors, those drivers have additional reaction time to avoid a collision.

Unlike the adjacent drivers who see a highly visible lighted display, the driver of the vehicle equipped with Muth signal mirrors sees a subtle tell-tale display. This reminds the driver the Muth signal mirrors is activated.

Muth signal mirrors are currently included on select new vehicles and are now available as retrofit package kits for Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons, Chevrolet and GMC full-size trucks, Ford F-150 and F-250 trucks, Expeditions and Econoline vans as well as many other vehicles.

Filed under Mustang Parts, Tips & Tutorials

I received a call from a customer the other day with an 06 Ford Mustang… He had previously purchased the painted slotted Mustang window louvers as well as the painted Mustang hood scoop and the painted Mustang rear spoiler. His problem was this…

He was on the fence as to whether or not he should get the rally stripe down the center of his Mustang… He liked the way it broke up the mono-tone look of the rear end, defined the lines of the rear end and added a custom look, but he was worried it would be too over the top. Personally, I really like the rally stripe… I think it looks aggressive, and I told him as much. He however remained unconvinced… He was worried the wife wouldn’t like it.

Since his main concern was achieving a custom look, without being obnoxious I suggested our Mustang Honeycomb Taillight Panel. It seemed the perfect fit… He thought so too.

Mustang Honeycomb Taillight Panel

The Custom Honeycomb Rear Deck Trim Panel for a 2005-2008 Ford Mustang will fit any GT, V6, Shelby or Roush Mustang between 2005 and 2008. So it is perfect if you are looking for a simple but stylish way to customize your 2005-2008 Ford Mustang.

Plus installation is a breeze! The Custom Honeycomb Taillight Trim Panel attaches easily with 3M adhesive tape just like the factory mouldings. Once installed you’re assured of long lasting beauty since the panel is composed entirely of UV resistant automotive grade exterior plastic to avoid cracking and fading, and (as an added protection) drains are provided in the bottom to avoid moisture being trapped behind the panel.

It really is a great way to give your 2005 – 2008 Mustang a custom look stylishly, and inexpensively.

As always, thanks for your continued support of HubcapsPlus and if you have any questions or comments I’m always here!

Filed under Hubcaps, Tips & Tutorials, VW Hubcaps

Hot on the heels of the current retro-chic trend that has completely taken over the automotive industry Volkswagen is now making the old school blue and white VW logos available on their 16″ Beetle Hubcaps. Check it out below…

Volkswagen Beetle 16 inch 1998-2001 New Factory Original Equipment Hubcap With Blue and White Logo

Personally… I like the 16″ VW Beetle hubcaps with the blue and white Volkswagen logo. The Beetle is a retro-chic car, so I think the retro-chic blue and white logo adds a little style to the hubcap. You can see a picture of the 16″ Volkswagen Beetle hubcap with the modern black and chrome VW logo for comparison below…

I think the modern black and chrome Volkswagen logo looks better on the Volkswagen Jetta hubcaps and the Volkswagen Passat hubcaps which have the European Sedan styling. the Beetle definitely looks better with the retro look… What do you think? Which Volkswagen hubcaps do you prefer?
