    Took a slightly different approach. No gluing. No modification to center cap. Will post write-up once I put some miles on it and verify it won't fall off.

    quick update on the durability... they have been installed for about 6 weeks now and have held up perfect! No signs of wear, or cracks, or fading. They still fit snug, no rattles or looseness. Alllll good.

    Anyone know the diameter of those center caps? How about the diameter of the Six Shooter Wheels? Just curious if the fit.

    Durability check? Just curious to see how they are holding up now... I'm really close to pulling the trigger on this mod but still hesitant. On a side note. Did you purchase option 1 or 2 for your wheels?

    Durability is good, no signs of wear at this point.

    Anyone know the diameter of these caps or the size of the rings they snap into? Would love to know if they would snap into the rings on my method standards as I am not a huge fan of how far out the method caps stick out.
