This is just another thought on paint the hubcaps

After i paint them white i might go out and get some Vinyl and placing in on the hubcap to give it a diffrent look

I guess its something to do when your cheap

i would try to make it look something like this

I like the idea, but why vinyl instead of masking and painting black?
x2

this might sound pointless but my friend did this, paint your steelies black cuz the stock black color isnt dark enough, if you do that the hub caps are gonna look more like rims, a bit rice but hey like you said, "I guess its something to do when your cheap"

I figured that if i can just get correct measurements it will look even all around + i can get free vinyl cut outs. but paint the black on after also works

I like that you didn't paint over the bowtie. they would look good if you put some clear coat on them too IMO

cool. well it depends on if you want the black nice and shiny or kind of a more dull look I guess. it all comes down to opinion
