    Looks more hot-roddy to me sans caps. Depends that your shootin' for. Sweet looking ride in any configuration!

    Caps with no rings. Without caps, the car looks incomplete.
    If the car was chopped no caps with rings would be ok.

    Going with caps and ribbed trim rings on mine. Like that look. Got the caps the other day, still waiting on buying the rings.

  26. I have the same issue, sometimes I run with caps & rings and sometimes I take off or switch caps. It depends on what look I prefer on any given day. Versatility, that is what I like about having the combo of the steel wheels, trim rings & small caps!!
