    This might give you an idea... Coker Smoothie Rims, one with the cap, one without. Most of these rims have the 10 hole universal bolt pattern, so they look better with caps, but I did see a car at a show once where the owner filled the five extra holes with little chrome plugs. Different.

    Are they dual bolt pattern and do you have a pic without the center cap?

    Most of these wheel companies buy their centers from the same stamping plant and they come with dual bolt pattern - either 5 on 4-1/2" & 5 on 4-3/4" or 5 on 5" and 5 on 5-1/2".

    The 12 series wheel have lugs/bumps on the inside of the hubcap ring area to hold the caps in place. The are smooth only when running hubcaps.

    If you think the outside looks good, you need to see the tan leather interior. It's SWEET! :cool: :cool:

    Aren't those pinstripes new since the roundup?

    Rally America (HAMB vendor) sells dummy studs for the extra holes. That's what I'm using...
