I'll answer you seriously dude. No, you can't get commodore centres to fit. If you open your wallet and let it get raped, Ford have a similar centre cap.

In theory, you could have some bolt on adapters made up with a holden PCD for the wheel to bolt to.

But why would you, when you can use the Falcon steel wheels for the same look.

Cheers

haha, next it'll be a chev badge on a suzuki, oh wait it is.

For the thread starter.
To start, they are s**t plastic things, and you most like could get them to fit, they just wedge in between the wheel nuts. I dreaded fitting them stressed I'd break one. :lol:

I know a guy who tried to fit them. They will fit on the rear, with a bit of squeezing, but the front hub sticks out too far, and they will not fit at all.
If you want centre caps, get some 12 slot caps, or even gs-style caps. The chrome ones look good, on a stock rim with a chrome dress rim.

Excellent idea scooty I've been trying to decide on wheels/rims. I was thinking ef stockies, widened in the a**, maybe a dress rim and some sort of cap, I've been suggested malibu's I don't mind them, but I'm not yet decided for sure.
