      Sorry, can't offer the enjoyment of slapping Ronals on a Porsche, or trying to swipe the wheels off a vandalized R8....

      What I have, is a brand new 2015 Golf 1.8T with a set of 16" steelies from Tire Rack wrapped in WS70s for the idiotic winters in the DC/Metro area.

      They are boring as all get out. Yes, yes they are. I need to have some fun with them. I may plasti-dip them later this summer just to make them more interesting, but for now I am looking to the VAST knowledge and pure unadulterated levels of tact and thoughtfulness of TCL to help me find the stupidest or ugliest 16" hubcaps that I can slap on this setup.

      Rules of the game.

      1 - No spinners. Played out and boring.

      2 - Must be purchasable, something I can actually go buy in the next week or so.

      3 - Photoshop is not required but it would HELP!

      4 - If you have suggested it (the first person to suggest it), I go buy them, and put a photo of the winning hubcaps on my car in this thread... I will send you a gift box. It may have stupid stickers, odd car-related gadgets / gizmos, Paracord tidbits, an old VHS tape, WHO KNOWS!

      Here is the car:



      Remember, 16" hubcap + ugly = winning!
      A loving welcome from TCL

      It doesn't get much worse.

      Also, they come with chrome rings around the edge.

      Full moon eyes or baby moons and beauty rings get my vote.

      shucks. well, then anything that shows plenty of the steelie lurking behind it. personally, i would just rock the steelies in the winter (i do), and if you want to jazz them up a bit, rattle can them real quick...

      Can you get these as hubcaps?



      I'm planning on doing something similar for my car next winter. It'll piss off so many people.

      If I could get Ronals as hubcaps, this would never have been a thread, and they'd be on the car already.

      Sadly, not that I've been able to find.

      Debadge your car then stick Suzuki emblems on the hubcaps.

      Funny you should mention that because, as I was looking for my hubcap recommendation, I came across this pic. I say whatever the hubcap is chosen it should be painted gold.
