Gold Centercap Bowties


Recommended Posts

I just recently purchased a 2021 Silverado 2500HD with the High Country Package. The color is silver ice metallic and everything is either chrome, silver, or black except for the gold bowties on the wheels and front grille. I am picking up my black bowtie for the grille today but what have people been doing on the wheels that will hold up to the weather and abuse? I'm not going for the "blackout" look but just don't think the gold works with the color scheme. Thanks!

You might want to double check those center caps.  Bowtie on them isn't gold unless its got a different wheel on it for some reason.

I'm not trying to sound like a jerk, but I did actually look at my wheels before posting this:

 

 

And now you know there is a chrome factory option.

I feel your pain.  I want black GMC on my hubs.  Already blacked the front and rear GMC emblems.  Just don't think the red goes with my Cayenne Red paint.

Just ordered this Amazon.com: Dupli-Color EHWP10800 High-Performance Wheel Coating Gloss Black: Automotive    a couple days ago to try.  We'll see how it works.

 

Good luck

Those are exactly the OEM ones you are looking for.  But FYI -- the price is EACH so they would cost you $160.  You should be able to find knockoffs on ebay for much cheaper.

Yes, which I new already. The question is what can I use to make the bowtie black that will hold up exterior weather?

I bought black vinyl stickers off Amazon when I had my 1500. I was shocked, but they held up great.

Will have to wait and see how it holds up.  It said good for wheels and plastic.  Was able to get a pretty good prep so I have high hopes.  I think they look pretty good and I never did a clearcoat over the Duplicolor.

On the truck.  Now the wheels match the front and tailgate emblems.  I just thought the two reds clashed.

 

I will try to report back if I have any problems.

That looks great and is exactly what I am looking for. Did those letters just pop out of the chrome surround? I'm curious if I can get the gold bowtie to pop out......

The chrome surround is held on with some 'snap tabs'.  The letters are held on with their own snap tabs, 2 per letter, that go through the chrome surround and into the cap itself.  Neither seemed to have any adhesives.  The letters could be removed without removing the chrome surround.

I just popped the caps off the wheels and very carefully pushed the letters off while squeezing the snap tabs with some small needlenose from the back.  I did not pry on the letters from the front.  Was able to get them all off and and back on without a single break.

 

Good luck
