    i was originally planning on waiting for tire before i put the wheels on but i just could'nt wait. i hate the center caps that came with the wheels so "fabbed" my own.

    Looks great man, nice choice! Are those PC's?

    And yeah, running them without the center caps is the way to do it.

    How did you mount the removable PC center cap outer piece to your wheels?

    i "rigged" it using gasket/adhesive compound that i picked up at walmart:D. i ran a bead where the center bore meets the wheel and i left the bottom part of the cap unpainted. it was been a week and there still on. i do wonder whats gonna happen when i need to take the wheel off, im sure it wont be a big deal

    You think you can just glue it on the wheels? What did you use to paint the center top caps?

    what i used is for making gaskets. i used very little and i figured that it would dry expand and "seal" the cap to the wheel/center bore. i scuffed the plastic cap with sand paper and then painted it with Krylon Fusion paint for plastic. i did it a week ago and its held up so far

    Good choice!!!:D

    I personally liked the look of the centers on my truck. I think it needed a little accent, since my truck is silver. If it was white, then I would have no center's! But def. a good choice!:thumbsup:
