    Well the center caps that come with moto metal wheels suck balls, so i need to buy new ones, and i was wondering if anybody knows if i could run stock center caps with my 951's?

    The ones that came with the wheels were the snap in kind if that means anything... Thanx

    Easiest way would probably be to try one on!

    And when you do, let me know or post a pic if it works. I have a set of black ones that I plan to install for winter and yes, the caps suck. Not to mention 2 caps are chrome and 2 are black (used wheels).

    I dont see any way to do that, unless you welded the factory lug nut on the end of your current lug nuts for the cap to lock on, i think it would look like ass. Better off with no caps IMO.

    I just ran downstairs to look at mine after I read your post and you're right. It really wouldn't be possible. The lug holes are recessed and the wheel itself tapers out at that point, so there's no way they could sit flush. I really just want to find a plain jane center cap with a lip to go in from behind the wheel like the old school ones.

    I haven't searched much, but I'll fugure something out. Worst case, like Tim said, just run without-especially for mine just for winter.

    Shit, well i need to figure sumthin out, i assume the stock caps go in the wheel, then the wheel bolts on correct? Not pops in after the wheels is on?

    I have the caps off now, and it actually looks like dog shit...

    It should be able to work, but the only way to tell is to try it
