My new free wheels!!!!

The old man down the street failed to tell me till now that he had a set of wheels that would fit my camper. He is the kind of guy that just comes across things and keeps them in the garage. So he was kind enough to insist that i take them for free. After acting as if i couldnt possably take them i did. haha. They are the 4 bolt pattern and i have not checked to see just what size they are but im wanting to put some kind of caps or something on them so they look a lil less like HF wheels. Any ideas?

Maybe you could find some hub caps that would fit.
Spinners Maybe!
or chrome baskets
I had some Appliance chrome baskets on my Pinto when I was in High School They just had one bolt in the center. Maybe you could weld a nut on the bearing Cap 8) and screw them on!

Mariam thanks! I put the palm trees on the night before the Lake Perris gathering, along with the woodie trim shown in the pic. Still more to go. I only wish my driveway fared as well as the camper in this build. I just noticed how you can also see all of my varnish spills. lol

What is a chrome basket? And the bolt in the center is an idea to look into. Maybe i can go to autozone and get those real cool platic spinners like you mentioned. HAHA! Just kidding! :lol:

Nic:
2 from Auto Zone to go on vairman's tear..only $10.29 each..
Auto Zone hubs prices seem to reflect 4 hubs so call your local store for details buying 2 or singles.
