    I just got the new ones in today and compared the two. I think I like the new thinner ones but not a 100% sure just because it shows a little bit of a gap between the ring and the wheel.

    The OEM style:

    New thin style:

    I like em both, but I like the larger 3" style a bit better. It really helps your rims are freshly painted I think...

    My dad bought the thin ones like that for his 82 low rider. He bought them new from GM. They were OEM for a van.

    I wouldn't spend the money to send them back. They look good!
    At least wait until you have the tires mounted to make your final decision.

    I like the thinner ones. Makes the wheel look bigger.

    If I can get the other three done tomorrow night, I’ll be mounting the tires sometime this week or weekend and I’ll have a better comparison.

    You'll never now until you get them mounted and see how they look. But my gut tells me they'll be good

    Looks real nice!
    Make sure you get the proper shoulder bolts for the caps.
