Default Lugs/Bolt covers

I don't think I've paid much attention to my wheels lately .. but how would yellow lugs .. or bolt covers look on my yellow ranger ?? ... Do they make any?

Depends on what kind of wheels you have, but I think it would look tacky... post up a pic so we can get a better idea.

Far as i know they dont make yellow lug nuts, but if you have a center cap that you can paint then thats the route i would go. I would find another center cap first before you go painting so you have a idea what it's going to look like. Have fun !

I'm with Tom... lets see the wheels. There are some nice rims I've seen that have accent colors on them that match the vehicle. I kind of like it. But I guess it would just depend on a lot of things. I don't think it would look to paint my lug nuts or center cap blue. But thats just cause I don't really like the style of wheels I have.

Kind of ricey sounding, but would have to see it. Let's see a pic of your truck, see how the color combo is.

ok, yes, it does sound very ricey, but i saw an g250 with body color lug nuts and it looked sweet. also, the rear 1 tone axle hub was painted body color.

Yea I see a lot of people with painted diffs, looks good, but for me it would just get so dirty so quick, and I am too lazy to wash the truck, let alone the diff.

Old school trucks (like before 1960) used to have color matched rims with chrome center caps. I've thought about that for my Edge. I wouldn't mess with the lugs, the first time you have to change a tire or rotate them you would have to repaint them. Nice Fishtails by the way.

I like those too but i wasn't referring to your attire. It's an old school bike thing.
