    No hub caps looks much better than with. But I guess it depends on the look you are going for.

    I like either. I think the hub cap looks okay on if you wanted to go that route.

    My definition of hub cap is what is on this '69 Plymouth Hemi Roadrunner. In this instance, I like the look of poverty caps. They are also useful as a dog dish.
