Help with new wheels.........

Hi Jeepers, I need some help. I recently bought a set of Black Rock 909's for the beast and I am having a problem with the center cap. There is only one screw that secures the cap to the rim and it is leaving a large gap on the other side of the cap. Any ideas on how to get the thing to stay flush? Thanks

Solved the problem. I had the standard acorn style lug nuts which were causing the cap to seat improperly. I switched the lugs to a short open ended style and viola!, problem solved.

A lot of wheels that have caps only use one bolt.
