There were 2 options big bolt pattern cars 5 on 5 got this style cap while 4.75 bolt pattern cars got smaller cap. We use corvette caps now and change emblem.

Now you gotta do like Mike did and paint the inserts black... then you've got a perfect wheel.

I'm kind torn.  I had it both ways, with the bare grey and then painted.   I kind of liked the grey...




Really miss this car....

I like the small cap look. The darker center color sets them off.

I'd be painting those like yesterday with that polish. It'll reflect more.

Did you notice how much the polished rim makes the dark charcoal so light? All rims were painted the same color. I didn't want black and I didn't want argent when I painted them years ago.
