it looks so ghetto without hubcaps.

i also blew 2 tires last season and i started with no hubcaps... it looked bad... then i put hubcaps on and it was much cleaner.

Hubcaps on. People talk abuse the term rice a lot, but in my opinion there is no better personification of the word than steelies without hubcaps.

I kinda like the no hubcap steelies... I don't find that to be rice at all, unless there are other contributing factors involved.

No hubcap, so it looks like a spare tire rather then looking like rice that you cant afford one extra wheel.

ever tried painting ur hubs? If you have nice ones and u choose a decent color it comes out pretty nice. As long as you dont go for bright colors, i.e. red/blue/green
