Pop that center cap out and see if that provides some mounting possibilities.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Tap threads into the bores, two left-handed and two right. Fine threads.

You really should consider making a joke to check air pressure... could maybe use a rubber hole plug to seal it up

The cheapest rubber plugs I could find were like $8 for 10...and these wheel covers were basically free. Trying to see if I can mock up a DIY version. Not that $8 is a big chunk of change or anything, but part of the fun is seeing how low cost one can make the mods.
