Install 2005 or later center caps on 1994-2004  Mustang Wheels     $50.00 set of 4.
When 94-04 17x8 Mustang wheels are narrowed and mounted directly to 65-73 hubs, a different center
cap must be used.  

The 05 and newer center caps have a hollow back so they clear the bearing cap on the early hubs.

Can also be used to upgrade the 94-04 wheels with the 2005 or newer caps that have a better looking
design, closer to the appearance of the 65 styled steel wheel center caps.

This is a set of four machined alloy adapter rings.  Center caps are NOT included.
