Yes sir! Still waiting on those pesky caps. lol. I talked to them last Wednesday and they said they were waiting for the parts they ordered from the Chevy dealership to arrive, which they said should be there that day, and would try to get them done and shipped by Friday. No email yet saying they shipped. I have ordered a LOT of stuff from them and never took this long to get. But as you know, good things come to those who wait ! Soon as I get them, it's wheels on !! Then pics as soon as I can

When I got my wheels I was going to use my center caps from my stock wheels. They were to small and I had to order 6rh gen center caps.

Oh man, don't tell me that!! Carlos said the stock SS center caps for the 5th gens are the ones that fit these M228's..

I think they sent me a 6th gen set by mistake. Hopefully yours are for the 5th.

lol, me too!! Got my caps Saturday, but the beast is in the hospital. Been there for a week now and I probably won't get her back for another week or so. Had to pull the tranny and send the converter back to the manufacturer. Seems as though my 3200 stall converter decided to take dump on me and split on the hub that goes into the trans, swell up and destroy the pump, housing, bearings and seals and spray the entire bottom of the car with trans fluid!! Supposedly it is still under warranty, so we will see what transpires.

lol I feel your pain bro! We had 2 of the most beautiful, powerful, modded nasty production modern muscle cars, and all we can do is LOOK at them!! Really sad. lol. At least yours is in your garage? I hope? Mine is 22 miles away, tucked in a corner by herself with red cones all around her so no one gets too close. Kinda like a child in "time out" ! And you beat me by 11 days, mine has been down since May 28...
