    I’d love to get my hands on a set of those ones on the right I think they would match everything perfect. How would I got about searching for those ? I’ve tried searching for center caps but those never come up. Do you know what vehicle they originally came from ?

    Also thanks everyone for the comments, I went out a limb here and tried something different from everyone else’s in my city and I like the result, just need to get myself some lowering springs when the funds allow it.

    Here’s another picture of the current setup

    I can't do ebay at work, but you might try 'honda pilot' or 'honda ridgeline' or 'honda element' 'wheel covers' or 'hub caps' or 'center caps.'

    One of those combos should yield some results.

    If you don't care about perfection, look for a used set. They are generally less expensive.

    Here's a source, a bit more $$ than ebay, though:

    https://www.hubcapheavenonline.com/p...iAAEgLj7_D_BwE

    Part of the problem in looking for stuff like this is that most people seem to not know what things are called.

    People call anything that covers the wheel a hubcap, when in fact, a hubcap covers the hub. The thing that covers the entire wheel is a wheel cover. Whodathunkit?! haha

    And what is the difference be a hubcap and a centercap? Well actually, there is a difference. A hubcap is generally thought to cover the hub on a steel wheel, and a centercap is what pops into the center of an alloy. They both cover the wheel's hub, but centercap is a cooler word for cooler people with cooler wheels.

    Slightly off-topic, but I bought steel wheels for my 1992 Honda Acty because it had alloy wheels on it but the front wheels had 5mm spacers and I didn't want those. They're just factory black and nothing special. As nothing in 14" size can really be special. But whatevs. I would like some scotty-like hubcaps for them though. But they're 4-lug, not 5 like the Civic.

    Yeah, I just did a search on '1992 honda hub caps' and got full wheel covers, pop-in center caps for alloys, full wheels of different types in 4- and 5-hole patterns, but not what I was looking for.

    I like steel wheels. I've always wanted something like this but I believe it can only be done through custom work

    That is actually exactly what I want, too. Smoothies, with a wider offset than stock.

    I'm sure that somewhere out there are steel wheels from another car, with the Civic bolt pattern (or SAE equivalent), than will fit my car. I just have to commit to the research.

    Of course, the hubs will have to match, or an adapter will be needed, too.

    It's hard to tell, but now that I've blown up the image, the wheels on that car could be Civic steelies that have had the outer rim separated from the inner wheel, and a new larger outer rim welded on.
