^^Jazzer, thanks for keeping up with this and getting his questions answered.


OP, Jazzer is 100% correct in his advice/directions for swapping over the centercaps.

Trimming the factory caps 1/32" would be very easy and could be accomplished with either a dremel tool or a razor blade.

Either that or you could remove the "emblem" on the stock centercaps and transfer it over, like Jazzer had explained.

I personally think it's a whole lot easier to trim the centercap slightly to make it fit.


As Jazzer previously stated, some of the factory centercaps are also "too deep" and may require the legs to be shortened slightly as well.

The stock caps have tabs on the inner diameter that snap into the 2 1/4" hole. I do not understand how I can trim those with a dremel tool.

I do understand what Jazzer was saying about peeling of the decal and trimming it...but again, not sure how to trim the inner diameter.

Thanks

Just glue the Ford emblem onto the aftermarket wheel cap and let it dry. THEN, use a razor blade up along the side (like a shark fin) and just slice along the edge. I don't even think you will need to, as there will only be 1/32" overlap and about the size of the gap around the cap to the wheel hole.
