I recently installed Snowtires on steel wheels with beauty rings and baby moons. However, due to constuction on my daily commute, I lost three hubcaps in as many days. So, I went with a set of knock off spinners. The install for these were a bit more complicated, but I like the look and I don't expect them to come loose.

Dude, that looks bad-ass!!! Looks like if people drives too close to you, their tires would be punctured and leave you and your lovely car unharmed. The A-Team! hehe :P

The steelies are aftermarket. I bought them online, from TireRack, with tires and TPMS sensors installed. The beauty rings and spinners came from eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/SET-OF-4-DAISY-200S-T70-WHEEL-RIM-CENTER-CAP-KNOCKOFF-TRIBAR-SPINNER-2-5-HOLE-/201355921021?hash=item2ee1bf867d:g:raAAAOSwVL1WEzm 6&vxp=mtr The beauty rings just snap in. The spinners, not so simple. I needed an adapter/sleeve to mount on the hub. I had to fabricate them from an old stage 80 pipe.
