S-10 owners, I need a favor

Recommended Posts

If you have the aluminum wheels with the simple center cap (just a round cap with the bowtie), I could really use the measurements of the cap and a pic of the back of the cap.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you'll be chopping them as that cap appears to be one piece.

I think that's the first cap I found that was 2 5/8" across. They seem to fit this wheel:

That's a different cap. It's flat, so it won't work for what I want to do. The diameter is also too small.

I'm worried that the other ones might be too small in diameter as well.

Count me out of helping. I was thinking of my girlfriend's Blazer, but they have totally different wheels than the above - mid-90s Sonoma brushed aluminums with black center caps completely covering the lugs.

I've got some right out in the garage I can get specifics from. Just tell me what you wanna see. :)

But if you want them, all you have to do is just name a price.

YJ: I'm looking for the overall diameter and the clip to clip measurements of the cap. It would be great if you could get those for me!

Lets see ... I think the cap is 6.5 inches in diameter and the distance from clip to clip is about 6 inches. I'll triple check that for you when I get another free moment, Camino. :)

And if you need anything else S-Series related, just shoot me a PM.

Thanks YJ, your timing is excellent. I just finished the wheels today (pics shortly).

Sounds like BP was right and those centers are all one piece? I'm just trying to find a cap like the ZR2 wheels have. If yours do detach, then they might do the job - but it looks like only the ZR2 style do that. Hope I'm wrong.

Do you mean the center caps on my aluminum wheels? If so, I believe they are all one piece. Sorry, Camino.

Try the ZR2 center caps. They might be two separate pieces; I'm not totally sure.
