    yeah I know - its kind of OT, but I dont like them, I have never owned a set of them but they came on the 55 1st series chev pickup I am trying to return to its former glory. I dont want to fuck them up cause some lowrider guy will buy them off me on ebay for good $$ ;)

    You will probably have to break the locks on there. Be careful though. Originally a screw like a star pattern was used and you had to use A special key that came with the wheels to remove the pan. Guys use to steal those center pieces all the time. I have seen nothing but a long phillips screw keeping them on too. Good luck, I had a set on an impala in the 90's during High School

    thanks for the info, got lucky, the locks weren't engaged, so just popped them off with a tire iron and a rag.
