After painting the steel wheels red or white with some Duplicolor I plan to get some baby moons to cover the lugs. But I don't know how those fit onto the center of the wheel at all, or exactly what size will have the best looking fit.

What should I start looking for? (I did see a nice DIY with full mooneye discs and Fiat center decals, but I want to keep the lip and holes showing.)

Ahh, how about chrome beauty rings or those fake white wall "ribbons"? Are they a fit-all where I just find the right wheel size?

Although plain (by choice and design of course) they look REALLY good in white! Nicely done.

If the 500T has the same brakes as the Abarth, more interesting is, how did you manage to install 15"s on them?

That looks really good! Beauty rings nicely accent the wheels, and the red on yellow is especially cheery! It makes me think of race cars. Maybe it's the checkers part. Thanks for the pics!

Hi,
I used the info on one of the threads to purchase beauty rings and baby moons. Used VW clips attached by drilling thru the wheel (a little scary). The moons can be purchased anywhere
but used Hubcapmike. The moons are 8 5/8 inside diameter, the rings are 15".830183028303

Looks GREAT! Did you have the wheels painted to match the car? If not, let folks know what you used on the wheels that matches up to the Ramé so well.
