Stock hub caps, yes or no? (pics)

Well, I remember one of the first things I did when I first got my car was take off the hub caps. But just the other day (yesterday actually) one of my friends said, and i quote "man put your hubcaps back on, your car looks dirty without them" so i was going to take his advice until another friend told me today that "your car will look ****** with them on" so what do you think

Hub Caps (pic when i first bought the car)


As my car stands now


Bonus pic - as I was going through my ricer stage (with the flame seat covers, flaunting the portable dvd player etc etc)

Ummm....Yeah, listen to your friend who told you to put them on. Otherwise you look like you're an unpainted bodykit and aluminum wing away from being the ultimate ricer

I am interested in seeing the car of the friend that said "your car will look ****** with them on." I already envision him driving a tan 1998 dodge intrepid with an aluminum wing and GT-R badge, and no hubcaps.

Unless you're going to get rims, you shouldn't change anything about your stock wheels. Keep your hubcaps on. It looks like you've been in an accident with them off.

put the caps on. steelies and no caps just looks ... well... poor.
And I mean it makes you look poor, on top of looking generally poor.

Christ when I bought my wheels I BASED them off of the LX hub caps cause even at 14" the style looks great on our cars. Thanks HFP for making a 16" wheel that is very similiar!

lol its funny you say that. my friend that told me that used to be a hard ricer till i turned him down the right path. he's gone thru 50-60 cars so far (all old rusted junk) and found a way to rice each one. currently he drives a 94 protege, with a fart can, and...you guessed it. no hubcaps (he has chrome ones tho he's waiting to put on )
