    Has anyone had success taking the centers from the stock original wheels and using them on aftermarket black rock crawlers, white spokes or any other steel wheel?

    I wanted to use the OE centercaps on mine but the center hole in the rim is too small. I looked at modding the caps but couldn't come up w/ a good solution. The only other option is to put the wheel in a lathe and open up the center hole a bit. If my wheels didn't have tires mounted on them, I'd try it. With the tires, you'd need a big A lathe.
