Default Stock 4 lug and center bullets....

Anyone know of a brand of center cap bullets that fit between a stock steel wheel and the hub?
Thanks!

found some 3.125 OD push through bullets that I think will work. SHould be here this week via ebay via summit.
If they fit, they will almost finish up the wheel appearance I want on this car. The only other thing is to find some chrome lug bolts, if there is such a thing...

I have one of those in the garage somewhere... I bought the single to figure out if it would work... and it didn't. So it's rat holed...

You could always go to Studs and Nuts to get the appearance you want with the lugs... Not hard to do.

The Bullet I bought didn't fit the wheels I have... so it didn't work... I did figure out I could put a couple of wraps of electrical tape on to make it happen, but didn't like that approach. I thought it would loosen up too easily over a short period... the wheels I have are aftermarket Eagle brand, and they don't make the centers that belong on them any longer...

Ah, I'm going to use them on stock wheels if this weather ever breaks. If they aren't big enough, I will slot the bottoms and flare them.

Used a bit of dish soap and the went right in/on. A sckosh taller than I wanted, but they are better than gunky parts showing.
