i went for the other style caps, the stainless steel ones with no valve stem hole, and those wood grain racks are awesome

^Where have you been all of my life? Moon caps look way better than I thought they would hahaha

Wonder how something like this would look:

Like where it doesn't come all the way to the lip and is a little more pronounced.

The spun discs, I thought about them. The moonies I have would work if lower moar and spaced out further. 6.5" wide wheels are the suck though. In the pics are 12mm and 18mm spacers on them. 30's and 40's would have done them justice with a bit smaller tire. The idea is good, dump it and rod that shit

Truetrue. Can only imagine a slammed B5 spaced on moons and white walls... haha

Imma try and find a pic when I did wide white inserts. Might have to call my buddy for this though. I did the 16" insets, looked ghey so took em off 10 minutes later.

you need a neon colored wheel behind the cover, one thing I wished I did. I have some 16 x 9 steelies for next winter. stretched winter tires anyone?

Neon yellow would look sweet peaking out around a moon cap. Plus I'd like to see it on a black B5, since I also have one

A stretched tire is about the worst thing to do for winter traction. If the goal is *less* traction, then it'd be perfect though.
