ok so I just bought a set of 5 craiger soft 8's from adrian at kryptonite custom works. these wheels are sold w/out the center caps so I need a set of 5 CHEAP black caps for the rims. any suggestions?

Why do you need center caps ? Surprising though, every place I have seen them for sale they came with center caps..
To me it's just one more part to keep track of when pulling a flat on the trail or pop a bead back in or whatever.

I agree with Richp, just run without them. Spray the hubs with satin black Rustoleum before mounting the wheels and it'll all look good once the new wheels are mounted.

ya every place I've seen them they say caps not included, oh well good point your right just another part to keep track of. guess I'm just not as smart as you guys are. :flipoff:

Do your stock center caps fit? If they do, you can just paint those. Did you try the junkyard? See if you can find a 15 inch wheel with a center cap at the junkyard, and take center caps from it. Otherwise, my best advice is either the internet, a Mr.Tire or similiar large franchise that deals exclusivley with wheels/tires, or just paint your hub and forget em.

tomorrow i will get some pics of mine, but in the mean time i will look for the link i found it from.
mine have seen alot of highway use, off road, and many a hoses' to em, and they hold up just as good as anything else. also they are kinda flexable if you run em into something. And hey, if one does break... eat some toast.
