I have a set of freshly painted Ford wheels that I am going to put on the Daytona. I am thinking of using chrome lug nuts with a chrome center cap, but I have not found the type of cap I am looking for. Does anyone know of a source for center caps that will fit these wheels? The center hole ID is 2 3/4" . I am looking for the small chrome bullets not stock hubcaps.

52, I like the small caps with beauty rings. Think they are real sharp.

Dick,
That is the look I'm after. I don't know if it will look as good with a narrower white wall, but we'll see. The wheels I have don't even have a provision for a hub cap so baby moons and the like are out.

Wow, I just checked the site. $50.00 each!:( I may have to put those on hold until I find some on ebay or a swap meet. If I could afford those prices I would have my wide whites.
