Default Those with multipiece wheels come in please

I am looking to majorly clean and then plasti dip my 2 piece True Forged wheels and they have the assembly bolts in them. Can I remove and reinstall those bolts without having balance issues? I know the bolts aren't all exactly the same weight so that is concerning me just a little.

I wouldn't plasti-dip 2 piece wheels, but that's just me. Why not just get them balanced after they are all put together?

What do you mean they aren't the same weight? They sell replacement parts for 2-3 piece wheels including those bolts I'd worry about torque specs (also some have a gasket that has to be replaced) in between the pieces

Well for now the dip serves 2 purposes. 1 is to help keep them cleaner because they are fully polished right now. 2. I am considering powder coating them over the winter and this will allow me to see how they will look on my car in the color I want. If I don't like it, I am out 50 bucks and can clean them back up.

What I meant by the weights are different is that I would think they might be a couple ounces off here and there which could add to a big difference in weight.

That's something you'd have to ask True Forged (the replacements one just comes in a bag) or box

Yeah that's what I figured but knew this would be a faster response tonight while I was thinking about it.

I drive it way too much and don't have a garage to keep it in right now so they look terrible.
