    I also like the raw look of the spider caps ..... full caps make it look too cosy imo .

    I am digging the hub caps. Cool thing with those is that you can shed them when you want and it is a cheap way to change things up if you get tired.

    -all gayness aside

    Why not try something a little more advanced and stripe your rims and go with spider caps like these:

    (Apple Green would be a great color for your rims)

    That way you could run some spear type lug nut caps in-spite of what the gays tell you
    (not that there's anything wrong with him):D
     
  17. The hub caps look good, but because they are on different wheels than they were originally designed for, they stick out kind of far. Cadillacs had a very deep recess in which the caps were to sit, when you put them on a shallow recess wheel they look goofy IMO. I have been through this on my Hudson, I put a set of 57 Caddy caps on it and they looked like shit, but on the caddy wheel they look fine.

    Frankly, I think those caps are fine, if you want you could add a flipper or knock-off to the fronts for a little motion, or a bullet if not, the backs are pretty much hidden anyhow, so...

    ...a pair of something interesting added on the cheap from a swap, and you've still got virtually zip invested for a unique look!
