    Just got some Method NV wheels but don't really like the hub caps that comes with them , are there any other options ?
    What about lug nuts? lock lug nuts ? what are you guys/gals using?
    thanks

    Method hub caps are incredibly stupid. I threw them away and don't run anything.

    @Silverspool modded some TRD caps I gave him to work with his Methods caps. Made the caps stick out less and looks good.

    They wouldn't fit on the front. Only the back. Unless you remove the cover over the cv bolt. Even so not sure they'd fit...

    I didn't know you had a set. The front doesn't have much room with the axle nut cover for a flush cover to fit. I assumed they had to Stick out a little like the trd ones pictured above in this thread

    I've seen them. Not arguing with you. I believe you. Just looking at my front with that cover sticking out past the wheel they must be paper thin to still sit flush on the wheel.

    I think you're imagining these install like an oe part does- it does not
    [​IMG]
    Raptor ones aren't like these

    Raptor ones mimick method nv caps in the way they are installed, as in you need to remove the wheel and insert the cap on the backside of the wheel, I hope that makes sense
