Tracklite Gear 17x7.5 center caps?

Postby Chuck H » Fri Mar 04, 2016 6:12 am

Brian,

I've been researching wheels for my 2012 for a while, and the Tracklite Gear you sell seems like a great deal for the price. I was just wondering about the note regarding the center caps. Have you found a more domed cap that works with them? And if not, do you know how much spacer you need to get the flat caps to work in the back, and whether that limits you to running less than 225/45-17 tires without a fender roll?

Thanks!

Yes, got caps for those today and I see 8 of them available in the gunmetal color today.

Nice! You don't do wheel/tire packages any more, by any chance, do you?

We gave up the tire business, just didn't make sense given that shipping costs go up about three times when tires are added and local tire dealer will often include lifetime re-balance and rotatation

Ok, one last question (famous last words) :lol:

You don't happen to know if the OEM TPMS sensors will work with these wheels, do you? I plan on ditching my OEM wheels and using these for the summer, and it would be nice if I didn't have to spend another $200 on TPMS sensors if I can pull them off the factory wheels.

Thanks for all the help!

Sorry, cannot recall trying the OEM sensors on that choice. We would take them back if was an issue, have yet to find any wheel in those we sell that won't work with the OEM sensor.

If the OEM ones don't fit, I'd probably just skip them. Not a big fan of TPMS anyway, and I'm sure I could figure out how to make the dashboard light disappear. :wink:
