    Not sure what type of reception this question will get but here goes...
    Do any of you have aftermarket dust caps on your wheels? Or just the standard black plastic?

    I had some silver ones until some little tw*ts decided to nick them (which was just a matter of time).

    Should I just stick my plain, boring, black, plasticy ones back on? I've heard the anti-theft ones are rubbish.

    I don't bother with fancy dust caps anymore.

    I used to have some alloy ones on my mini and some scrote kids nicked them while I was getting my hair cut. Cheeky b's were still riding their bikes near my car. Managed to get 2 of them back but the other git rode off.

    I've got three metal/chrome dust caps on my car. Go figure.

    That's just rubbing salt in the wound, at least nick all of them!

    Don't bother. Just use the black ones, or your stress levels WILL raise.

    I've always just used the standard black caps. Not to keen on aftermarket caps

    Had some .44 magnum shells in my house and made some caps with them though...

    I've got red dice at the minute on my Golf, cost me 65p from eBay so if they get nicked, they get nicked.
