I took mine off and painted the rims with hi-temp gloss black from a rattle-can. I kind'a lite the look. It not on a real car, it's on an 06 xB and no one takes one of those seriously, anyhow.

On my old Hyundai, I put zip ties on the inner hubcap ring and looped it around the holes in the rims. This way they stayed hidden and I never lost a hubcap.

Is that how Fiat affixes hubcaps now? Geez the cost cutting is getting comical.

Iím actually surprised they still have hubcaps. So many cars have alloy wheels albeit some are really cheap.

He should have done a star pattern or something. Just those two on opposite sides will cause a tire misbalance. crackmeup
