On or Off? (hubcaps)

Post by ZeroChad » Sun Jun 01, 2008 4:15 pm

I ended up repainting my steelies this morning, b/c my suspension was giving me a rough time. I'm kinda hesitant to put the hubcaps back on. What do you guys think?

I'll be tinting the rear lights this week as well. Coilovers are in the works, and new wheels down the road, so no knocking the 4x4 steelies :-)

If I do leave them off, I'll be getting some black lug nuts to put on.

personally, i would keep the hubcaps on for now. I was never into the whole "steelie" look. Just save up for wheels and if you have to, buy some 1gn springs to knock down that 4x4 look until you can get some money for coilovers.

Thanks for the opinions. Yeah, the more I look at it, I'm thinking of putting them back on. I might leave them off for a couple days just to get a feel for what a black wheel would look like on the car.

Either way but I lean toward leaving them on. When you upgrade try to not go heavier. Go lighter if you can afford it.

On. Cars with their hubs removed look like ricers who can't afford real rims.

Definitely put them on. Looks like a demo derby car without the covers.

I'm going to say leave them off. My red '00 was rocking the 15" steelies after I destroyed 2 of my 17" Konig Verdicts (painted red...so pretty). The car was de-badged and de-molded, and I got almost as many complements on the look as I did with the other wheels.

In the end, it's what you like. I like steel wheels...takes me back to the old days of my 70's muclecars :lol:
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

Well thanks for all the opinions. Looks like we're very mixed about hubcaps here :lol: They do look pretty sweet with the new paint, I used a semi-flat black and cleared it. I am putting the hubcaps back on, but only untill I lower it and get my new wheels. I'm definitly sporting the bare steelies during the winter though.

I was thinking about that, but I dunno. hmm.


I'm hooked on the black wheels now though. I just don't know if I want a polished lip or not. I'm really leaning towards some 16x7 rota slipstreams. These guys have a pretty good deal on em. Machii
