are there any type of hubcaps that work w/ the civic VX alloy rims? (I like the look of the rims, but if I can squeeze out a little more FE, I don't mind covering them w/ moon hubcaps.

thanks!

I think you would be better off getting some honda insight rims, they are going to be 14" insted of 13", but the stock insight tires are low rolling resistance 165/60 R14, or something like that, same width tires as stock VX tires, same weight rims, and they are semi-disk style wheels, where if you put disk hub caps on VX rims, you would still have the egg beater affect of the spokes on the back side of the wheel, because after all areodinamics is more then just what you can see.

There's just something about the recessed lip on the others that I just don't care for.
I think you're URL is incomplete. Do you mean this one? :
