    A few of the cars at SEMA & the Optima Batteries Shootout had this killer color of matte dark metallic gray. I like it more than matte black because you don't lose the diameter of the wheel when looking at it from any distance. And it still has that sinister quality to it.

    That's why I'm asking about the center cap. It's black plastic with the Cadillac logo. Is there another cap that fits these wheels....Or??

    The black cap would go with many different colors, i guess if it really bothered you scuff and paint the caps and maybe a vinyl caddy logo applied, you could clear over it

    Yeah Rob, that's exactly what I may end up doing to match it, I wish there was a cap with The Cadillac logo that was raised so I could powder coat it too but, it's not looking good. Thanks for the info guys. Much appreciated!

    Be sure to take a piece of sandpaper and clean the hub before you try to put the caps on, the PC builds up. Dont smash it with your hand like i did and crack the cap, lol
