    I was wondering if anyone had the capability to make billet aluminum caps to cover the hub for us guys not running centercaps? I was perusing the Spidertrax website and saw their new hub's with the anodized bearing caps......thought it would look real nice if we had some simple anodized aluminum options to hide the rust/crappy finish on our hubs (front/rear).

    Anyone do this, have interest/capability to do this?

    There's a steel cap on there already covering the axle nut and codder pin.
    Are you just looking for a different color?
    Spraypaint worked for me.

    Me too dude! I think if they had some anodized center caps in various colors with custom laser etching, a ton of people would be interested.

    I just got these *pro comp wheels and the dude at the tire shop said the center caps available they had were these lame black ones that stuck out 5 inches... I want something more flush. HELLA FLUSH.

    No center cap

    Yep. I'd be down for anodized/custom caps if I wasn't running stockers.

    In all seriousness you're probably not going to find anyone who will make these for the stock hub. The caps are a press fit steel cap into the hub. Aluminum will bend and pop right out. The one you put a picture of has 4 allen screws to keep it in place.

    As for the rear...there is no cap. It's just the face of the brake drum.
