    Default Finally pic's of Rockstar Center Caps after i cut them down!

    Well the other day i finally installed my rockstar center cap's back on after cutting the plastic that the allen bolt's go thru to bolt into the rim about 1 1/2 inchs. The only problem was finding the 1 1/2 inch allen bolt's for all 4 center caps but finally gathered enough up to complete the easy mod. I didn't like the look of them sticking out a few inchs off the rim so i decided to do some research online and do what some others did! I hope yall like the way they look because i sure do now!!Click image for larger version.

    Should have done a before and after pic, so we can see the difference. I'm assuming the cap just sits closer on the rim now?

    Yeah man about 1 1/2 inchs now they use to stick out so much u could see behind the center cap from the side and now there's maybe quearter of a inch or less between center cap and rim. Here is a pick you can look at the center cap and see how far it use to stick out:Click image for larger version.

    Thanks man. It's actually really easy to do this and each plastic piece you cut doesn't have to be perfectly cut just close enough and all don't have to be the same length just close enough lol. I did mine with a kitchen knife since it has the ridges in them instead of a regular knife that would take forever. I make paid $10 for the new bolts 16 allen bolts and they fit great!!
