This install look normal?

I think my previous Yokohama's had a wider bead, because the edge of the rim wasn't exposed like that.

This bad? I mentioned it to the tire guy after they were installed. He said it was normal. Just thought it looked odd the first time I saw it.

thats how my 215/75/15 bfgs mounted on my stock 15s.

now with my toyo proxes on my motegis the bead mounts right at the edge, maybe even a little past because of the rim protector feature

wrong


the chrome covers also cover wheel wieghts, and have a flush lip, not a raised lip. Those are chrome rims, not covers


(I know this because I've had a set of both)


And not all tires have a thick rim protector, so Yes, that looks normal.

Just stay away from curbs
