Yes the center-caps. Mine do not thread-on?? They fit over the nut but there is nothing to hold them.

Are you running different wheels or spacers or anything that would shorten the amount of thread protruding beyond the wheel nut? Try taking the wheel off and see if it threads on with nothing in the way.

Case-Closed............It had what looks like homemade spacers, two hexes pinned together. I bought this kit from a guy new, never ran and unfinished but it came with a set extra Pro-Line 2.2 wheels. I guess he was going to use the 2.2's and did this mod. Probably would have not held-up as all I had to do was put one side in a vise and twist.
