    well.. guess we arent alone anymore then.. crazy people flock together.. lol

    hmm.. yeah thats kinda what i was thinking. mine will use the 3 mounting holes and just cover instead of a push through.

    then i could just use some other center cap.. or what i plan on doing.. getting some center cap decals (stormtrooper or TRD ones) and put those on there.

    Thanks dood! Yeah they will be painted white :cool:

    Just trying to figure out a center cap solution.

    Almost wish I would have went with 16's.. but I need to finish these up and see if that will make a difference first.

    I gotta say... I held one up to the wheel just to see.. and immediately got excited :D can't wait to see them mounted. Still need to paint my hubs. My attempt yesterday failed... I hate trying to work on my truck in an apt complex :(

    Finished my Center Caps!

    decided to make some instead of painting them. gave me an excuse to go buy a new Dremel too :)

    picked up some ABS plastic mudflaps from O'Reileys (thanks to JD for the idea)

    traced my MT center caps onto the plastic, cut out with snips, then Dremeled out to the finished product. gave them a couple coats of VHT Satin black. not a perfect match to the wheels, but overall came out pretty good. pleased with how they look and are easily removable to get access to the hub and re apply paint, etc. if needed.

    got everything bolted up and lovin the look. will have the rings powder coated later. it gets tons of looks now :)
