Thanks for the reply.
Yes those are similar to the lugnuts installed on the car, although they do lack the washer. The problem is that when I put the center caps on the wheels to "fit test" The lug nut head does not come all the way through the hole.
If you check out the picture I posted above, the plastic holes on the center cap (i.e., the "landing spot" for the washer on the center caps) is not flush with the steel wheel. There is about .5-.75cm of space between the center cap and the underlying steel wheel where the lugnut screws in, and the center cap is supposed to sit.
I think this means that I need like a longer lugnut, or like a spacer or something that fits *between* the centercap and the steel wheel. This would be in addition to the washer which would fit between the lugnut head and the center cap.
Alternatively, the underlying problem may be that these are generic steel wheels, and if I had used OEM honda steel wheels then the recess on the steel wheel would have been slightly wider and deeper, allowing the center cap holes to sit flush with the steel wheel instead of there being a space.
Does that make any sense? I can draw a schematic if it's still not clear. thanks again for any solutions you might have to this problem.
