Well . . .
they would physically fit the lugs, but would have offset and brake clearance issues, as they are designed for rear-wheel drive (and drums brake) cars. They made some for PT Cruisers and HHRs, but have had serious vibration issues he said were inherent in alteration of that wheel design for a higher offset, front wheel drive vehicle, esp. one with disc brakes.
So, no dice on those.
Anyone know of somewhere else that might work?
So far, it looks like the "Spider" caps might be the only "hot rod" option.
Never mind I just read the other thread about hubcaps. The ones called smoothies are the ones I saw but you already said they don't fit. The spider caps I had actually though about doing, or maybe going witht he spinner style center caps might be cool as well. Oh and I had a thought the other day when working on the xB. The ugly yellow color of the spare rim. That would actually look kinda retro with chrome center cap and ring if you had all four wheels colored the same.
hey guys according to my scion dealer and my research no center caps fit the stock steelies. We did figure out that a fence post cap fit them perfect thought. I can get more info on that if needed.
So far the only thing that we found to fit the steelies are the 5 lug spiders, which will also keep your breaks from over heating unlike the moonies which will get hot. You could maybe also go with the chrome beauty ring to. My dealer is curently looking for over options for the hotrod/woody look and says he will start carrying them if he finds them as we arent the only ones looking.
Center caps require flanged made into the inner ridge of the rim. The STOCK Scion one doesn't have one. So, I was looking for Steelies that did. Unfortunately, the ones made are for near zero offset Hot Rods and won't work on our xBs. IF I could find a steelie with flanges that would fit, one could use center caps.
