Update...discs are in!! I think the plan is to use 4 black anodized security screws to mount and where the metal cap is in the middle...I will use the factory Honda center cap (prev mentioned). Also Im thinking that I will give them a good sanding and polish them to a high shine with the da polisher I plan on getting. I will also paint the wheels satin black and replace the lugs with chrome ones. Let me know what you think!

what's your total cost? I was looking at these 14" Full Moon Hot Rod Racing Disc Hub Caps Wheel Covers | eBay
which is not cost effective but they look good

Well in the end I'm thinking it will be about 150 or just a bit under for everything. But this is also a style upgrade too so I justified the cost. I paid about 90 for the discs and will be about another 10 in hardware. But if I sell my factory hubcaps I could bring back another 60-80 back into my checking account. I'm hoping it all looks good in the end!

So I guess I am nixing this project...I really want to but I might be able to get a set of alloy wheels...and Im not to sure about covering those up. I mean I would love to but my wife would put me out if I did a mod like this to alloy wheels.

Anyone want them? I paid 87.75 to my door... any offers?? I still really want to see someone do this mod!
