The lips is the outer circle on the wheel that has a polished look to it... You can see it much better on a darker color wheel. If you have ever seen a black wheel that has a polished part near the wheel, well that polished part is part of the lip...

of those speedchips! I figure if 1 gets me 20hp then 10 will get me 200hp!
