BLOOMING PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minimizer Tire Mask is a new product that is deigned to easily transform the look of wheels.

The user-friendly kit allows heavy-duty vehicle operators and maintenance departments to paint their wheels in a few simple steps.

Company officials said that painting heavy-duty rims can be a tedious, time-consuming task, but Minimizer Tire Mask can reduce masking and cleanup time dramatically, allowing old rims to look new.

The kit comes with a tire mask that protects tires from paint and primer overspray. The mask installs on the outside of the rim, covering the tire, so the entire rim can be sprayed with a primer and paint. Additional options include a rim shield and hub cap protector to ensure a precise paint job on all wheel components.

“Quality and ease are characteristics of Minimizer that we pride ourselves on," Minimizer CEO Craig Kruckeberg said. "Our customers work in a tough industry, so we are always pleased to provide products that help to simplify all the difficult work they do. We are excited to launch Minimizer Tire Mask as the latest addition in our ever-growing line of aftermarket heavy-duty trucking accessories.”

To ensure that the process goes smoothly, Minimizer created a demonstration video that users can view here. The product will be available for purchase Feb. 1 from Minimizer’s international network of authorized distributors. It also includes Minimizer’s new VMRS (Vehicle Maintenance Report Standards) codes.

    I got a set- they're very handy in the shop. Saves a ton of time over hand masking or dismounting to paint. Wheels look great when finished.
