Billet Wheel Center Caps - Pics in - Taking orders
« on: October 31, 2012, 08:09:46 PM »
I've been working with Rich Santana to develop billet center caps our "stock" GM wheels.  The center cap will be anodized black or polished aluminum or Chrome.I believe the diameter is 2 3/16"  The caps would have bolts that thread into the cap from behind the wheel so they can't be stolen. 

A set of 4 would be less than $90 and a small additional charge for graphic designs to be laser engraved on.

This thread is to gage interest.  If you have any questions, ask.

Joe, would he make them a different size for someone that had aftermarket wheels? Maybe this would be a good way to get a Pontiac logo or something different on a set of wheels that weren't originally on the car.

I'm aftermarket too but DBG don't you have the J2/Monarchs too? I have the Monarch crown on mine. I wouldn't mine having the Pontiac arrow or the Indian logo in polished aluminum.

let me know when you guys get to about 15 sets and i'll get them on the machine. you'll need to pay for them up front, but once they are on the machine, it will only be a week or two out. oh yeah, did i mention we could anodize different colors as well? red and orange are freaking beautiful if you polish them first and then anodize. looks like candy. then laser them. SWEET.

If you're going to the trouble of a production run why not something more useful like adjustable antiroll bar endlinks or delrin bushings?

Okay, so I did a preliminary fit of the prototype. Fit absolutely killer!! So with that said, it looks like there are about 14 sets counted for. So, they are 89.00 a set. That has the finish option of clear polished anodized, black anodized, and polished. As far as chrome, we will quote out for that and get back to you. My choice for the silver stock wheels would be clear polished anodized. It will offer more protection than straight polished. As far as logo's or graphics, send me your ideas and let's talk!! We are open to all suggestions.
These caps come with bolt and washer for theft protection and have an O-ring for snug, centered fit. 10.00 shipping in Continental US.  International is 20.00
If you want a set of caps, email me at sales@santanainteriors.com and I'll get you on the list.
