    Custom CENTER CAPS???

    Got a red 02 WS6 and got some awesome black C6 Z06 wheels from OE Wheels. The only problem is the vette emblem in the center cap. Does anyone know how to get a custom center cap?

    Do you mean you have aftermarket replicas that do not have the emblem in the middle? My last bird I had replica 18" C6 wheels and put the vinyl stick on ones, I think this is where I got them and they were great. never had a problem with them falling off or cracking, you wouldn't have been able to tell if they were OEM or not. I first tried to find center caps and had no luck. A lot cheaper too I imagine. Here is a pic of before and after.

    I ran into a simular issue with the rims im working on for my car. THey had a crappy design on the center cap, so i sanded the center cap down, im gonnna paint them when i paint the rims, and now i have some center cap decals coming. Im trying this one company on ebay i found. THey sell any size center cap size with almost any color birds and/or background OR no back ground at all. I have some woth a red bird emblem and a black background to go with the rims im about to have painted black when the weather gets warmer out. Ill put some pics up when they get in to show the quality. they were only $10 or so so if they look like crap, not much money lost, but if they look good then well worth it. I think ill clear coat on top of them when i paint so i can protect them and seal them better on the rim.

    Got my center cap decals. Mine are red with black background but it looks like you can get them without background to have just the bird decal.
    ill post some pics up tomorrow. Ill probably clear coat them to protect them a little when i ut them on the rims.

    I also have the C6 Z06 rims on my car (chrome), I didnt want the vette center caps either so I purchased a set that had no logo on them from a company called "west coast corvettes", fit perfectly with no issues

    I had some exactly like the firebird ones pictured from brent franker. If you search either here or google you should find him - don't remember his site right now. Great work from him- had them on my original wheels.

    center cap decals will be on soon. Just waiting on paint to cure and clear coat. Then the decal goes on. Pics will be up soon.
