    Has anyone seen one of these that has deployed? Square centred S-Line wheel from 2005, should have said. I am wondering what piece of trim comes out of the centre or does it rip the centre and bag comes out through the tear?
    Basically I was thinking of vinyl wrapping the centre bit behind the 4 rings badge, never seen it done before which maybe means it's not a good idea but it looks like it comes out as one piece as there's a tiny gap at the edges, so if I am careful not to seal this up, it shouldn't interfere with the operation. On the other hand if it rips a hole in the middle, probably best not to touch it, anyone know?

    It tends to split across the middle, I cant imagine a wrap would hold that powerful explosion back, your risk of course.

    Cheers for that, think it would be unwise to muck about with safety isues, need to think again.
