Re: Evil Hubcaps
Yeap best way (abit of hard yakka) is to spray your current stockie rims with a product called wheel silver, don't forget to sand your rim as well with 300 grade wet/dry paper before hand.
Once painted, buy the taxi/police centre caps and make sure you have the long stock nuts, not the short ones as you will have problems bolting/unbolting the centre cap to the wheel. I did this to my Silver EL i had and looked great. Perhaps a final touch is to get some 15inch chrome wheel rings i think they look great with the painted steelies.
They are a cost effective way to make a stockish falcon look better, eliminates that annoying hub cap noise and better braking due to cooling.
