First off let me say that the ring looks a lot nicer than the picture suggests. To me, the picture looks like the manufacturer has tried to create "wear marks" on the tyre. Fortunately I bought it anyway, and on the ring itself it's like a miniature new truck tyre (ie. without the apparent marks shown in the picture). So overall, it looks very good and is certainly a bit different from a regular band type ring. As for sizing, fit and finish - all excellent. Being titanium it's light and strong. All in all a very good purchase.
