    Default 2012 CR-V Wheel Center Caps

    Just a question. I was able to buy 16" take-offs from a dealer for my snow tires. They did not come with the center caps as they needed them for LX the take-offs came from.

    Other being decorative, is there a problem if I don't use center caps in the winter?

    Thanks

    Cosmetic, but I still finish them off so snow does not get to the hub threads.

    Thanks. I am just concerned about water and dirt causing problems by getting into the hub threads. I probably will get them. Just need to find them cheap.

    Ever notice all those cars with ugly black steel winter rims? None of them have center caps.

    +1 Your doing it right with an extra set of wheels and snow tires might as well finish it off right with the center caps. I think handa has them for about $26 for the set.

    I'll probably get the caps since I was able to get take-offs from a 2012 CR-V LX model. If they were just the plain black ones I probably wouldn't but since these are the painted steel ones I would since it looks a lot better.

    Thanks!!

    I thought they were cheaper than that, but when I checked for a 2006 they were a similar price.
