    Hey guys,

    Anybody got any pictures of pizza pan type hub caps in use on an XS.
    I like the looks of this guys rear wheel.... real nice chop in general. :thumbsup:

     
  2. They look like moon eyes wheel covers....I think they stopped making them though. Kevin Baas makes them to your specs though...could try him.
     
  3. ^^one of my all time favs...will those work with a mag?

    jamesgs4 fuck this, let's ride!

    yeah, the price is what kept me from getting them for a long time. pizza pans are hard to make look good, but they are cheaper.

    Here is an idea.... how about cutting out the senter of these old Oldsmobil hub caps... about 50 bucks for 4 of them on E Bay. They look really similat to the Mooneyes ones and much cheaper and more vintage. I'm not a cheap ass I just think Mooneyes are over pricing theres.... Can't cost more than 5 to 6 dollars each to have thouse made up and selling out for over 140 dollars is way high! :eek:

    Any Ideas... anybody want to give it a go...
    I would but I live overseas so I will have to import the hubcaps first....
    Was hopeing a yank would try this out first. :D

    Yea, but you being a Yank you should be able to find some just sitting around or on a wall in a buddies shop or something of that sorts. Over hear well.... forgetaboutit !
    E-bay are still cheaper than MoonEyes ones

    I am in a huge dilema, I can't deside if I want to go with 19" mag front and back or just stick to 19" mag up front and 16" rear with some sort of disks on them....
    I wish Pontiac had made 19" HubCaps too.... LOL... then I know exactly what I would do...... LOL.... That would KICK ASS !

    Hey James,

    I've seen them on Ebay for 25-30 bucks each.... best bet is to buy the ones selling one hubcap.... the sets of four seem to be more expencive.
    Not cheap BUT way cheaper than the moon Eyes ones

    Yeah Ive been trying to source some of these to modify as well... I got 19's front and back though. .

    Hmmm... with 19" you may have to have some made up....
    The Pontiac hubcaps are 15"..... fingers crossed they will fit "inside" the mag without destroing them completely..... then I'll end up getting the Mooneyes ones any ways.... LOL

    Anybody know if there is a problem with putting the Mooneys disks on 16" mags....?
