Wrap electrical tape around your SS center cap tabs to make it a tighter-controlled fit

Well, see! That was the incentive you needed to get off your ass and get those smooth caps, already! Wink

Still sucks though.

Theres a HUGE hubcap store near me. This guy has just about everything. He told me that 4 caps will cost about $100. Cant find em at the j/y, and the dealerships want $70+ for one cap. I forgot about smooth caps. Maybe He will trade the 3 impala caps I have

If he takes trades, lemme know as I have two Caprice caps that won't fit my N97's as they mount differently than the other two.

Flat caps are uber ghey. They completely ass up the look of the SS wheel. It's just something done by people who aren't creative enough to think if something better when they are trying to be different.

I beg to differ, Jay. Those knuckle caps look like ASS on the fleetwoods. The caddy caps are FTW! Very Happy

Now, I do agree with you on the Caprices and Impalas though. Not a fan of the flat caps on those.

No, I was serious. Next thing you know they'll be telling us that color matched 15" wheels and baby moons are best.

Well, they might be if somebody got the urge to knock the centers out of the pizza cutter wheels and weld them into a reversed 10" rim.

Somebody photoshop Crovo's centers into these:

Started with one replacement today as the guy only had two of the four I need. I was missing one and the guy does not take trades. Was gonna see if he would trade 3 OEM 94-96 ss centers, but he is pretty crabby. So I picked up just the one today. It has the carbon fiber background with the chromish looking bowtie. He had ones with a black backgound and red bowtie. Only two tho, and doesnt know if he can get anymore of those. it would have matched my Lumina steering wheel. But based on availability, I made the right choice. Gonna get the other 3 when he gets them all in after my paycheck.

Nope. Not that intricate of a swap. I am looking into that for my 9C1 tho. Im talking about new caps on the 17's. They are the 2001+ or whatever year Impala caps. Nothing worth taking pics of Very Happy
