Mounting winter tires I found myself with a difficult choice: :hmmmm2: the hubcaps for my rims.
I do not like plastic hubcap pretending to be mags. They look so fake, poor and cheap. :bawling:
So I chose something completely different. [smilie=madking.gif]
Directly from the United States here are my new full hubcap. [smilie=gunhappyyan:
They are made in brushed stainless steel, (looking like the handles)
and now my little girl seems to have come from outer space. :cyclops:

They look so strange also to me... and I really love them!!!
Here in Milano I'm the only one to have it... (over 3 million people) and I noticed that they make the same effect of our cars: you love it or you hate it... but all look at you.

Wow! London taxi have such a wonderfull hubcap!?!? never noticed... I will take a look.

One one my doubts was the cooling of the brakes, but than I made some considerations:

- I use them with the winter tyres (only in cold weather) for summer time I have "normal" mags. So I hope that the low temperature and the air from under car will be enough.

- Usually I don't drive too fast, expecially in bed weather winter times, so I don't reach temperature too high.

- They are not made in plastic but in stainless steel so they will not melt down with heat.

- this Hubs are really too nice to consider others things...

- When I look at my car I see something different from other car. Is more futuristic and space. Now it's even more like this...

@frank. You are right!!! The real name is Full Moon!!!

Yep, my Dad drove a Hackney cab for years and his hub caps were exactly the same, lol.

I kinda like them, a little bit different.

I actually quite like them :) makes the Civ look very futuristic. Kinda reminds me of this ...
Is that a "Saturn" ? - had one as a hire car in Texas - grotesquely awful to drive ...

In contrast with most of the concept cars, it's not that different from the retail Sierra. 8th gen Civic concept was closer, though :)

Are these Full Moons available in black, too? Would've made your car the second Kit. Only adjust the 3rd brake ligth a bit :cool:
