have fun with the cracking clearcoat. love the rims but ive heard too many problems out of them. just ask STL. he has the DC-1s and the clearcoat is cracking where the bolts come in contact with the clearcoat.

Well DC came out with the DC-2s which you have minus the bolts around the outer edge to fix the problem. but what did the *******es do that designed them-- "Let's use alan screws to bolt the center cap on. SAME EFFING problem. /end rant. Sorry thats just the draftsman in me.

If you can find some really small rubber o-rings, use them to to go on the bolt before you put caps on, just a suggestion

Other than that the wheels look sick and im jealous

Either 32's or 33's I can't decide yet. I am going to wait for spring.

Like the O-Rings you get on the HID bulbs. Those could work.

Looks like a good christmas

A guy at work had problems with the center caps coming off. He had to lox tire the bolts on.
Just use the blue stuff. He actually lost one cap cause they backed out.
