    So earlier I put up an inquiry about wheels.

    A response led me to find several wheels with the basic look I want. For instance, I found these Mickey Thompson wheels:
    http://www.mickeythompsontires.com/wheels/classic-iii-black

    Like the other, similar wheels, I like everything about them except one thing: the cap or whatever it is called at the center of the wheel with the brand name on it.

    Can you remove these? Is there any drawback or risk to doing so?

    Related question: Anyone have any opinion of these Mickey Thompsons?

    Thanks.

    This is the current list among which I am trying to decide:
    Ultra Type 164 ( https://ultrawheel.com/product/164/#matte-black )
    Pro Comp Series 69 ( https://www.autoanything.com/wheels-rims/pro-comp-7069-series-alloy-wheels )
    Mickey Thompson Classic III black ( http://www.mickeythompsontires.com/wheels/classic-iii-black )
    American Racing Black AR172 Baja Wheels ( https://www.realtruck.com/american-racing-black-ar172-baja-wheels/ )

    I am planning to run 265/75/16s on it. Would be grateful for any feedback on any of these.

    These are a set of M/T's that i have. 16x8 with 265/75r16's. I never installed the centercaps, they were too bulky imo.
