Speedometer rings not only look chic, they convince with skilful details if the right environment is available. Because with the right tachoring, the ads and everything that goes with them can become even more valuable. Thanks to the easy installation, namely with Plug & Play everything often works by itself. Which means that the rings are simply clamped / glued and that's it. This also ensures that the rings cannot simply fall out in the event of vibrations. If the correct size has been selected, there is also a passport guarantee for the respective vehicle. Such rings are mainly used when the car is showing its age and needs a fresh touch. Of course, when ordering, you should pay attention to the exact designation of the rings so that they also fit. It is noticeable that there will be a suitable ring for every car. Because the providers are quasi infinite.

Apart from that, the rings don't always have to be round. For some areas there are also some angular frames, such as is the case with the speedometer & tachometer of a BMW E46. Mostly it is a chrome look. That makes the tuning even more beautiful and, above all, timeless. Sometimes you just don't need more for a sporty design and the right accents. Chrome and high gloss always work. Regardless of the style in which the car has already been tuned. There is also no need to use any annoying adhesives because the rings are almost always self-adhesive. Only dismantling and removing the window in the instrument cluster can prove to be fiddly. Here you should definitely ask in forums, the manufacturer or the workshop around the corner in advance. In terms of price, there are hardly any differences. With 20 € you are often well served. However, the thickness of the rings may vary. Especially with particularly boring interiors, it makes sense to use thicker rings to highlight the cockpit.
also as a splash of color a successful idea
If then the right type was found, no compromises have to be made in the car brands. For example, the rings are suitable for a Mercedes E-Class for all years of the model in question. Because often comes even a facelift with the same instrument cluster on the market. It does not have to be differentiated accordingly. But you can not rely on that! And if this has never been installed, that is often not a problem. With the right instructions, the rings sit in no time where they fulfill their purpose and still shine. Installing the speedometer rings has, above all, an aesthetic advantage. At the same time, they ensure that the car looks higher-quality. Also ideal if it is to be sold on. Nevertheless, you should first inquire exactly which manufacturer is selected at the end. Although the tachometer rings usually look the same, there are subtle differences. Otherwise, it should be emphasized that the shapes convince.

The speedometer rings are also suitable for those who have just started tuning. For design enthusiasts, in addition to the chrome ring, there is also the black version, which is made of carbon and, on request, in the favorite color or with individual foiling. So the speedo rings fall on request extremely, or else fewer on. Ps. There are even special crimping tools to crimp the tach rings themselves. Especially interesting for restoration.
