    Hello

    I bought my XX X-Metal Lens 24K Iridium glasses in 1999 and have been able to send them to Oakley for a tune up twice in 2006 & 2008. Well, today I called and was told they don't do that for my XX model anymore.
    I'd love to have the rubber pieces replaced and the glasses tightened and am a loss what to do now.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    I love these glasses and wear them almost every day.

    Thanks!

    You can get the nosebridge tuned up (tightened) by forum member the x-man. Here's his website:

    Replacement rubbers are a different story. You can use Juliet earsocks and temple shox, but XX nosebombs are unique. Lacking finding an OEM pair, you can get some aftermarkets. Linegear makes decent alternatives out of silicone:

    Juliet nosebombs can be used. They don't fit perfectly, but can be stretched to stay on and will work if you don't have replacements.
