go back to pep boys and get deeper nuts. OR...use the stockers and run the stock center caps. looks factory and custom all at the same time.

I like those caps. I hate those chrome caps that come with the Cragars.

no, they just snap over the hex on the lug nuts.

To solve my lug nut depth issue i have open ends. Though my wheels did fit with stock lugs, i felt they were too close for comfort length wise. (stud bottoming out). I will be ditching my cragar center caps for some stockers soon.May paint them like FX4Want2B's too.
