Beauty Rings Debate

Most Silver Clouds, Phantoms, Silver Shadows and Silver Spirits have something called a 'Beauty Ring'.

It's that coloured and striped metal ring on the hubcap - sorry, maybe I should say 'wheel cover'...

In the late 1990s Rolls-Royce deleted them from the all alloy wheels of the Silver Spirit/Spur.

Well, I have late 1990 Silver Spirit 16" alloys on my Silver Shadow and I am going ahead with putting Beauty Rings on them.

Is this an upgrade or update? Or is it an update with a downdate feature? It is hard to describe.

I think it will be unique, but still in appripriate Rolls-Royce style.

Here is the demonstration. I think it looks good!

Could this be a first?

I do still have the original caps and 15" steel wheels should anybody be concerned about abuse.
