These come with (what I think is) a cheesy chrome plastic center cap.
I wanted their metal G/T caps on mine, but they are intended for a
different wheel. I whipped up some aluminum adapters out of 6061-T6
and presto, we're ready to roll.....

Nice work BTW. Did you find you had to put a dish in the back side to clear the front spindle dust caps?

Thanks.
My measurements showed I'd have to do a very slight relief
if I used a socket head allen (and obviously countersinking that).

I was amazed that it even came close to clearing the dust
cap..... discovered that AFTER I did the drawing of course.

I used round head Phillips screws. Don't forget to leave room for locking washers. I had a cap come off because the screw backed out.
