      Aveo5 hatchback help! (looking for decent hubcaps or nice chrome wheels)

      I have the new Aveo5 hatchback 2010. I want to get either some decent hubcaps or nice chrome wheels. I have the 4 lug-nut style on the car now. Any sites for suggestion would be great. these cars do not have much accessories right now? Ot I am not looking in the right place. thanks for any suggestions! Sherry

      Well, if you are looking for a cheap way out of driving the most ugly black/Grey primer coat rims and the cheesy Grey (how much more would it cost GM to chrome them) five spoke caps (fake lug nuts that are Grey unfinished plastic,why bother?) on the face of the planet heres what I did. $650 bucks would be almost 8% of what I paid for my new 2009 sedan back in April. No way to sell these cheap ass 14" unpainted rims shod with $15 tires either. I though this would do until I wear out the tires. (Shouldn't take long, be lucky to get 15 K out of these excuse for tires).
      Found these caps for $30 at discount auto. Counted the perimeter spokes and they matched up perfect with the 14 holes in the primer coat rims. The five fake lugs are chrome and do not attach to the wheel like OEM. They bulge out further, creating an illusion of a bigger wheel. I painted the rims with black gloss and the calipers with high temp black.
      Again, a cheap way out until I have to buy new rubber and at least a 16" rims.
      The bowtie caps are shown in the new box. Autocraft, Munich.
