For filling with nitrogen so you can purge the wheel.

I've been pleasantly surprised by what I've read about those TR wheels, given they are pretty inexpensive.
1990 Miata, SNC 1.6, DIY Randall, R-Package Lip, Overnight parts from Japan.
1979 XS650, far from stock.
1995 Sportster, 'merica. Wrecked.
2007 Sportster, 'merica 2.0.

For grip the R-comp will win if you are on the track, for longevity nope.

Yea I completely lost the first set of caps just from daily driving and autox. Rudy from tirerack on the miata.net forums sent me a set for free, saying this was a one time thing. So I used silicone glue to glue them on.

My friend who's c1m I posted above lost 2 at autox, and 2 at streets of willow.

Lol, I super glued mine on, but unfortunately had to pop them out when I had to balance my tires. but yeah, I think Rudy sent me one as well, just had to pay s/h - awesome dude. I fulfilled my promise and bought a set of tires from tirerack about a year later!

Center caps are the worst thing about these wheels.

That, and I keep cracking rubber valve stems. Twice the valves, twice the headache. Going 949 asap.
