Yeah there bad to rust over time..i got U.S wheel center caps the first sign of rust i cleaned em up an rubbed em down gently with 0000 steel wool then clear coated em. after they dryed i cleaned em with polishing compound to give the clear a smooth finish now they look just as good as new an no more rusting. its just an option if u like your cragars more.

Similar dilemma to mine except i have Daytonas. Don't know if i should run the stock ford caps or the ones meant for the wheels.

What did you end up deciding on?

still got the stock mazda ones on i like them the shape works perfect for the cragar v-5s plus they are easyer to clean and i dont have to carry a extra tire iron the stock lugs are 3/4 the aftermarket ones are 13/16 may change back in a few months
