110 alloys and center caps. Need spacer?

I'm borrowing some alloys wheels while giving my steelies some TLC and new tires, and had to remove the center caps to fit them. Do the NAS 110 vehicles have spacers or just no hub cap. My hub caps hold in oil, so they are not optional.

Mainly just curious as I don't plan to stay on alloys - but would like to know what it would take.

thanks
charles

NAS 110 never had alloys, and I've always heard that you had to pull the center caps to make them fit. Places like rebornco and other places that do half-ass work always seem to have trucks for sale with missing center caps because they didnt want the expense of updating the axle ends.

I need to see a picture of Janey on alloys! Oh the bling!

My 110 is sitting on D90 alloys right now. They fit but you have to pop out the center cap for the wheel and they rub on the radius arms when you turn (at least with the 285 tires that are on mine). Anyway, they work short term but if you were keeping em I would get the spacers.

It's just temporary, but for some reason I thought the NAS ones came with alloys which was why I wondered. I actually prefer the steel wheel look and iirc those spacers are not cheap anyway!

Jim, I'll take some pictures before removing them, LOL.

BTW, I took some pictures of her a few weeks back and hope to find time to make a nice spoof on these fancy new car sites you see with flash based 360 degree views of the car once I get them (they are on a friends camera). I need to find someone to do a Jeremy Clarkson style voiceover and I'll be all set

Andrew where did you get the wheel spacers to fit your alloys? I have a set of alloys that have been gathering dust and I think its time to put some road tires on them since ive been running the Michelin X's for mostly onroad use.

Disregard i just found them on Rovers north. $419! Wow. I guess ill stick with the steel wheels for now.

Steel wheels rock!

At least that is what I keep telling myself when I price spacers.

I am running rear alloys with center caps. I'm holding off on updating the front axle until I switch to LHD and then I'll have the different axle ends that will allow the caps there as well, so for the moment no center caps. The 285s do rub the radius arm without spacers and some turning radius is lost.
