Has anyone seen these? They make your stock steel wheels look like they are 2 inches oversized. I saw a set on ebay for 65 bucks, they seem like a good idea for those with steel rims.

You asking for personal opinion or what they are for?

I know what they are for I think its a neat idea. Yes they actually cover a bit of the wheel and have springs in them so that when the tire flexes, it wont pop off. http://www.pilotautomotive.com/pilot6hh.htm The one I saw on ebay had big chrome spokes so you couldnt even see the steel rim, these are a bit different, but you get the idea. Heres another one http://www.autoamenity.com/Plus2.htm and another
http://www.silcom.com/~hubcaps/plus2.html I personally wouldn't get them because I have aluminum wheels but they probably wouldnt look that bad.

Well ...ummm... never mind. I'm not even going to touch this one.
If you like them, put them on. Heck, weld two on each wheel. Personal taste, thats what
the hobby is all about. My Dad hated my Centerlines on my 1970 SS Camaro, I still bought them.
