I am considering Hub Covers for my C5. Does anyone have any experience with installing them, etc.. I have heard several people say that they cause the brakes to over-heat??:confused

I had a set on my '04 vert and they looked great! Never had any negative comments or issues with them. They gave a very finished look to the wheels. Much better than rust...

Hub covers

I agree with BIGJIM, in fact he replied when I was thinking hub covers. Not regrets and they do look great.

when you say hub covers, I guess you are talking about the disk brake rotor that shows through the wheel. Mine were rusty looking POS when I bought the car. I couldn't stand it and got some black caliper paint and painted them. Now they just disappear behind the wheel. those covers are petty neat though.

If the brakes had not just been put on new when I bought mine I would be putting on some of those slotted rotors that are zinc coated. Had them on my 94 and they looked great and stayed that way for the 4 years I had them on (until I traded it for the 01).
