Center caps, chrome to black chrome
 
I powdercoated my 17's a while back, the center cap cannot be powdercoated because it's plastic. I saw the Altitude has black chrome center caps. Do you guys think they will fit the stock 17's?

I saw Just for Jeeps has them... do you have to take the tires off to change this or will they pop up with a flat screwdriver? I have never changed this before. I would like to get black matching nuts as well but I have no idea how to shop for them (size, etc.)

You're going to have to take the tire/wheel off to get the center cap out with out damaging either the wheel or the existing ("polished") center cap.

By the way, very nice powder coated wheels: lookin nice. I would like to go to the altitude center cap (if it fits) and the black chrome lug nuts.....but keep the polished wheel look.

I emailed justforjeeps to see if they know. If not I could take the change and buy one first. Do you know where I can get the lug nuts?

I used duplicolors black chrome kit on my center caps...just about a perfect match.

Thanks to a user in another post (name I cannot remember) ---

McGard [brand] black chrome lug nuts:

Lug nut (4 pack) -- Part # 64072

Wheel Locks (4 pack) -- Part # 24216


You can get them from Amazon, or other spots on the inter-web...

So - what is the word here, does the altitude center cap fit the 17'' wheels?

I emailed Justforjeeps but no response yet. One option would be to buy just one and test.

Got a reply from Justforjeeps and quote: "We ran your VIN and the Chrome center cap you have is the same size as the all black Altitude center cap. You should not have any problem using the 1LB77DX8AB center cap with your wheels"

I'll be ordering soon...

These are supposedly cast aluminum, 07 12 Jeep Compass Patriot Aluminum Wheels 17 Black Center Cap Cover Mopar | eBay

Can't believe how cheap they are.
