Stainless Beauty Rims?

So, how about these babies on black steelies? With the stock chrome lugs is might have some nice contrast. Could one of the Photo Shop pros give us a visual?

I like the rings, but one thing I noticed some rings don't cover the outer 3/8" to 1/2" of the wheel....giving the visual impression the wheels are smaller diameter. Just something to check out before buying, and what your prferences are. So many varieties....fat/thin, ribbed/smooth, etc.

I think it would look cool. You can probably come up with something for a center cap too. I have seen some plain chrome on ebay.

I do think the beauty rings are very cool but since I've never mounted any take Churp's advice there I think he has seen a few in his lifetime.

I am old enough to have see them on new cars like the mighty Corvette.

Any who, the one picture I posted is unusual as in they are real thin unlike most, and the clips (like moons) are evident in the angle shot. I bet these are flush with that mounting system. I am going to ping them and see what kind of reply I get.

The NAPA part number for the center cap is #730-2411. I am still trying to decide if I want to go with stainless, or chrome ABS rings?

Is it just me, or does that sound kinda-funky?
