I was in a similar situation.

I'd go to autozone and look for the dome top lugs. they are 1.89 a piece here.

But Ithink the rims look too good already for "winter rims" I ususally just stick the cheapest smallest steel wheels I can find with some decent snow tires and call it a night.

Well, the rims only cost me $300 delivered so they were cheap. A set of steels (needs to be 16") would have run me $250 so I figured why not. I didn't realize what the snow tires would cost me until now. Oh well. They look good and will help out with all the winter driving I do.

Plus I hate how the naked center section of steel rims look and I have never been a fan of hub caps.

I think I'm just going to live with the lugs the way they are. I still have one option to check out though. My sisters Grand Am may have the threaded lugs on it and she just has a cheap set of Walmart hubcaps on there that cover the lugs. I may be able to just swap lugs with her and get a full set of caps, but that may prove to be too much of a hastle to do. I know that 2 of her hubcaps are zip-tied on right now and I really don't want to go messing around with that kind of crap.

Thanks for all your input on this.
