Under the pretty surface, they've actually been painted pretty badly, so I'll be repainting then again in the Spring - too cold for nice painting from now on, I suspect. I do like the way they look, I just make sure folks don't get too close and see the wrinkles in the paint and the bits where the painter didn't even cover the primer - lazy, lazy person.
Specifically, a rim is part of a wheel; it is the most outer edge of a wheel, and is the location where a tire is attached. The term rims has also been coined as a slang term for fancy or customized wheels on a car, but a rim does not have to look a certain way to be effective. It is used by car lovers everywhere to describe a specific type of wheel: these wheels are almost always bought as an aftermarket purchase, and they can be custom-made for a specific automobile. When used in the slang sense, rims are usually chrome, alloy, or another shiny and durable material. Not everyone refers to these specific styles as rims; some people choose to call them wheels instead, and sometimes, although technically incorrect, the termrims can be used to describe standard factory wheels on a car, sport utility vehicle, or truck.
So technically they are "wheel rims" . Although when custom wheels started to become available no one referred to them as "Mag rims".
