im poor
im in a little hole right now and i want to get some new hubcaps that look like rims, but aren't. some hubcaps have big spaces in between and shows the black steel. i need some that are tighter together and can almost pass as real rims.
anyone know of any, where i could buy, what type, how much.

thanks again if u can help.

Hey Rick...this is what I'm rockin right now while I try to decide what kind of wheels to get. Trim rings, chrome lugs, and center caps from NAPA, I bought all the pieces for less than $100.

I'm all about mooneyes like shortbus8 referenced. Notice some are stainless steel. real moons are aluminum incase you have a preference. I have had 3 people ask me where I got my wheels. they are noisy and stick out far but I think they're really nice looking.

guitarsurf how are they noisy?
i would imagine they are quiet and aerodynamic because they are flat with no air going in between spokes.

There's just this pinging/clicking noise they make as the metal teeth inside the dish flex. People have asked me if there was something wrong with my car. There's a caulk fix that shortbus said would work. I'll try it when the weather gets nicer.

Here's some more moon chat on the noise subject:

For a close up showing how far they stick out, there's a pic in my scion nation garage:

no color choices. it's coated aluminum so you could get them stripped and annodized or just break out a can of rustoleum. ;) Short bus had them powder coated black.

black or gunmetal might even look better on a TCM than the plain aluminum. moons are a natural "cool" grey and the TCM is more "warm" so they sort of compete. I have several pics of TCMs with moons though and they do look good! :D

yeah, I'd rather use old wooden wagon wheels before I put spinners on mine. haha.
