    I love my DC-1 polished except that IMHO the center caps stick out like a sore thumb. So I took them off and wanted your opinion on which looks better.

    I think you should always do what you like. Its your truck and your life. You made the choice to take it off for a reason. Maybe becuase you liked it off. But becuase you asked, I say leave it on.
