A buddy of mine is saying that I need to get some caps put on the hubs. Said he can't believe Honda didn't put them on and said mud and water could cause big problems if any got in there. What do you guys think? I assume if they were needed, Honda would have put them on.

Your stock rims should of had little plasti-rubber caps to cover the hubs.

My stock rims have no hub caps, the spindle nut is exposed.

Well, sounds like they forgot some stuff.... oops

You might want to talk to your dealers. They should have covers

Questioned my dealer about this said they were omitted on purpose. All pioneers they have received don't have them. If you look at pics on the web including some official honda pics some have them some don't. Go figure...

This seems like something Honda intended to do, but pulled at the last moment...or early in the production run.

Mine don't have them. None of the ones i have seen at dealers have them. Other than looking unfinished, i don't really see it as a big deal. Those rubber caps don't really stop anything anyway. In fact, you could argue that they may hold mud in longer than having nothing at all.

If they were really needed, i think Honda would have made sure they were there.

Maybe I'll just put the dip to 'em. I've been dying to dip something. My truck or the pioneer is getting it as soon as it gets warm again.

I second that. I plan to dip everything I own as soon as I get some and practice its use.

Exciting. Are you mounting the tires to the rims yourself or did you have that done?

No, I've done lots of it in the past. Used to work for a Tire company. I ordered them through Rocky Mountain's Wheel/Tire builder so they are coming mounted.

When I ordered mine, they didn't have 4 rims and tires in the same place, so my first shipment was a rim and 3 tires then it was a couple more days for the rest of the rims to come in. Wasn't anything some silicone lube and ether couldn't fix.:eek:

Ah, the ether trick. I've seated several semi tires that way, can be spooky at times. My Dad just shakes his head :)
