Ever receive your SSR Wheels with stickers and wonder how they go on? Well, this little blurb will help clarify that a big. One quick rule of thumb is think of the valve stem location as “6 o’clock” or the bottom of the wheel. .
Here is the SSR Professor MS3. There are no stickers on this wheel so you would just want to make sure that the valve is level with the centercap. Keep in mind that the valve is in the 6 o’clock position and the centercap should be level on the 3 and 9 o’clock axis.
Here is the SSR Professor SP1. This wheel utilizes an “SSR” sticker that would go on the spoke that’s at “2 o’clock” Again, the valvestem is at the 6 o’clock position and the centercap should be level on the 3 and 9 o’clock position
Here is the SSR Type F. This wheel has a “Type F” sticker that would go on the 3 o’clock spoke and two “SSR” stickers. The “SSR” sticker would go on the flat or “lip” portion of the wheel. One would go above the 9 o’clock spoke and the other would go below the 3 o’clock spoke. Since this wheel has a spoke in the 6 o’clock position, the valvestem would be just to the left of that spoke. Again, the centercap should be level with the 3 and 9 o’clock axis.
Hope this helps demystify some of the wonder of sticker placement for the spokes.
Also, If you’re ever taking pictures of a car or wheels, It’s always nice to turn the wheels so that the logos and caps are upright… Here’s an example of what we mean. Not that big of an issue but pictures just come out nicer this way 🙂
