I like how it looks now, but that's just me

Would some dog dish bowtie ones from a van or 2wd truck work?

Isnt that the style Matt (Trakker) posted up the center caps for?
I LOVED that setup.
Might not be the best for winter, but if the parts are sub-par, winter wont hurt them.

It was pretty easy, the cost was the biggest thing really. The problem is the eBay auction pages of where I got all the stuff from are long gone now so I'm not 100 percent on what I actually bought anymore! Laughing

I think it's 12mm dual thread (thread on the outside) lugnuts that are 1.5 and take a 3/4 hex socket/wrench, and C5 Corvette lug caps.

then I'm just cheap... elephant

Centercaps, lug with outer threads, plastic cap to cover
sounds like more than $20-30
i spent 200... $50 is 25% added to the total price of this unplanned project.....
i can handle 10-15%

maybe the Cadet57 guy will have a price ?

Yeah, I def. had some coin into all the stuff I bought, but it was all brand new stuff including the centers, which were the biggest thing of all of them. I just really wanted that look.

sounds reasonable.... Arrow

now..... I live on RT. 159 2 miles south of 6 flags. over the border.
is there a place in the middle we can meet so neither of us has to drive to far?

i think that saves us the price and hassle of shipping... whata ya think?
