So clean that’s what I’m after with the Chevy hub caps too. Although I can’t decide if I want black since my truck is gray stone

The original set I was after fell through but I am after another set off an OBS powerstroke. Looking forward to sharing this once I get them

Well boys, here it is!!! I love the look and will take more pictures tomorrow. It was getting real cold when I finished so I quickly buttoned it up and went inside.

And I’m really liking the look without hub caps

Looks awesome! I always wanted a set of those old super single wheels when I was younger

I’m debating if I want to paint them black. I may plastidip for a couple months to see how I like it before I commit to a full paint job on them. I will be color matching the chrome on the bumpers then I won’t have any chrome on the truck

I did that with the wife's BMW. Haven't changed the wheels in 3 years.:ROFLMAO:

I DO have a staggered set of black powdercoated BMW wheels in the garage, just need tires.

Looks like you've already got it settled out, but just to clarify on some earlier comments in this thread. I've seen this myth all over the internet pretty much forever.

Whether a wheel is hub- or lug- centric is only relevant when mounting the wheel up. The purpose of either of those features is to make sure the wheel is concentric to the hub when mounting, so that it runs true.

Once the wheel is mounted, neither the hub ring nor the tapered lug nuts carry ANY load. With all 8 lugs tightened, you've got well in excess of 100k pounds of clamp load. No force the wheel realistically might see can overcome that, and therefore, the hub ring or lug nuts never carry any of those forces. They're for centering the wheel during mounting only.

Yeah this weekend I’ll plastidip and post some pics! But heck if it lasts maybe I can get away for a full season and use the money for some go fast parts!

This is a great explanation of it. I didn’t end up using a ring but I torqued it in the star pattern with a torque wrench and our conical lug nuts did a good job of aligning it properly
