I've seen locking hubcaps, not sure about center caps, but I thought I've seen them before. I don't know, however, if the H3's wheels can be made to except a locking center cap.

they certainly do not fit tight, none of the tabs are broken. i went to check into locking lug nuts and they(center caps) JUST popped right off with almost no effort. i am concerned that i will start losing them. [&:]

I know the chrome one fit nice and tight.
on the grey rims they have a metal ring inside them.
I had mine chrome plated and bought chrome ones they held on.
The chrome on the rims did not so i had to buy factory chrome rims.

I have the gre/ay ones and they fly off all the time...in fact one is completely missing never to be found again. I tried running without for a while but it started to show rust on the wheel hub so I put them back on.

Ghost..Steel wool out your hubs (to remove the rust) then spray Rustolium's Clear Enamel on the hub area.
