    Is there any love for steel wheels anymore ?

    Just wanted to get a second opinion on these wheels, I got the rings for free and threw them on. Kinda like how meaty it makes the tires look aswell.

    I think you need to get centercaps like scotty has.
    Whenever I'm suffering from Insomnia, I just look at a picture of a Toyota Camry and I'm straight off.

    I like my steelies, but seem to be in the minority on that.

    The center caps that bf referenced are from Honda Pilot and Element. There are two different styles.

    The one on the left is what is on my car in the sig pic, below. They are wider and flatter than the one on the right (the pictures are not to scale).

    The one on the left's bolt pattern is slightly different than the Civic's bolt pattern, but will fit because they are all plastic and will bend just the little bit it needs to. The one on the right is an exact match for the Civic's bolt pattern.

    I have a set of each. The one on the left is on the car now, as I have mentioned, and are still in their factory silver finish. The set I have of the one on the right I have painted a copper color, but got tired of that. In the next few weeks I'm going to strip the paint off, and paint them black lacquer, along with the wheels again, as the factory wheel finish is anything but acceptable without a full wheel cover.

    I think the all black shiny wheels and center caps, with just the chrome lug nuts might look good so I'll give it a try.
