Factory Center Caps

I know theres a few peeps on here using there factory caps on there aftermarket rims. I test fitted mine on my 10`s and I think it looks much better. I dont know what lugs that will work? Anyone got a link so I can get the right ones. Thanks

You'll need at least 3 of those per wheel to hold the centers on.

If he's going to run 3 he might as well run all 5. Use the lugs that came on your factory wheels.

I guess the rims are tappered but the lip of the lugs dont stick out far enough for the cap to grab onto. Do they come in different lengths?

No. mickey's and american racing they usually dont work because the hub is to thick procomps and eagles usually work just fine tho less thickness

I may be misunderstanding you but if your wheels don't have a tapered seat, I hope you didn't use a tapered seat lug nut...

The rims do have a tapered seat, I didnt think they were at first.

the mickey's and Americans you can kinda fake it to work but as stated the hub lip is huge compared to like my eagles. and dont be surprised if you hit a large bump and you loose a cap seen that on the mickey's and Americans because the cap tangs arnt fully engaging with the lug nut

Yeah I can see that happening. They do seem to be fairly tight, I had to beat them on with a 2x4.

They fit. Are you saying that they don't? Tons of members run stock snap-on caps with soft 8's. I've got the soft 8's cousin, D-windows and I run stock caps too.
