My 83 C20 with stock steel wheels painted silver with stock hub caps and "beauty rings." Wheels are dirty in pics but they clean up nice.

Re: Show Me your Trucks with Steel Wheels and Hubcaps

I am not sure about tire size, but try Tire Rack and Discount Tire websites. Put in your vehicle make and model and they will show you all the possible tire sizes for stock wheels. Somewhere I saw an online vendor that shows what a wheel and tire combo look like, but it might not include stock wheels. Of course, you could always copy a pic of the tires you want and photoshop it on to your wheels and hubcaps.

Shot over a black sealer in a standard down draft booth and baked. I use Lucas Quick Detailer between washings.

Re: Show Me your Trucks with Steel Wheels and Hubcaps

Ive got a stupid somewhat on-topic question. How do the dog dish style caps attach? I like em, Ive just never found a set around here to pick up. See on my vette I have ralleys, and just switch out center caps every now and then. It kind of gives you a different look without spending big bucks for a new set of wheels. Ive always just had the spinner caps on my truck. If they fit in place of the spinners, it may be nice to have these as an option to change around.
