    It seems Amazon has the best prices on these items.

    So after seeing the price of the center caps is $80 I decided to just do it myself. Put a piece of tape over the SRT, pushed it down around all edges really good with a plastic tool I use when working on cell phones and cut around it with a razor. Then I scuffed them with a red scuff pad and sprayed some satin black on. I was going to use adhesion promoter as well, but mine had gone bad and wouldn't spray. Which is why you always test spray cans on something besides what you're spraying first. It came out in a weak stream.

    Here's the finished result. Makes the wheels look more concave. I really like it.

    Great Job! ....you do know that you could have taken the wheel off and the center cap just pops out roght? Would make it allot easier to work on...
    Nonetheless, you did a fantastic job looks 1 million times better!

    Oh That's what I did, guess I wasn't clear. I was rotating and cleaning the barrels of the wheels as well as cleaning the Brembo's really good. Put a coat of wax on the Brembo's too. Hoping it helps them clean up easier.

    Oh okay....cool.
    By the way ...It wont work...I did the same thing. Put a coat of wax AND a coat of Armor All Brake dust repellent. Dust was back on in less then a week. Did not repel anything...but I am sure, like you said, it will make it easier for us to clean them!

    Yeah that was about all I was hoping for, to be able to spray it off for a while. Idk how the heat generated will affect the wax though.

    Last 1 week then were back to square one...:p
    Its those organic brembo brake pads (I think their organic to make that much dust) ....but I aint switching to those ceramic heat ovens that can warp your rotors with their lower stopping power just because of some dust!
