Aight I done went through 4 lead mallets and I'm tried of that shit. I wanna try a rubber mallet that'll last alot longer but would the make it where I can't get my k/o's on tight enough? Would it scuff the chrome/gold? Thank You!

Here's a question...I have bullet spinners, why do I need to use a lead hammer to tighten the tool on the spinner?

My lead hammer went to shit, couldn't find it, when I did it broke, etc so I said hell with it and use a heavy plastic mallet, it gets my k/o's tight, but i find that anything that doesn't give like lead, causes the chrome to crack/flake off. My spinners look like shit now but I'm not too worried about it, its a daily driver (sorta) so my rims see alot of rain too... I say if you want to protect your rims dont use anything other then lead, however if your rims look kinda like shit, kinda rusty, scuffed, do it =)
