What should I do with my wheels for SMC?

I have a bit of a dilemma, I bought these wheels thinking they were F1 cup wheels and with the intention of getting them refurbed in time for SMC. When the wheels were delivered I actually discovered they are F1 plus wheels sprayed in anthracite and had the bolts round the rim filled and need a fair bit of a work to get them back up to spec. They were also missing their centre caps, so I sourced the correct centre caps for them but didn***8217;t have the funds to get the wheels refurbed for SMC and the caps are in silver but the wheels are anthracite.

So should I:

1. Fit the centre caps to the wheels for the show
2. Leave the centre caps off
3. Change the wheels and put back on my kerbed straights for SMC

Heres a few pictures:

Wheels with centre caps




Without centre caps



And a close up of one wheel with the cap, two of the filled bolts have been exposed on this wheel, but this is the only wheel that***8217;s like this



Comments welcome, I can***8217;t decide if the wheels are in too bad a state to attend a show with or not?

I quite like it with the centre caps but I think it looks odd because they are the wrong colour. They should look good when the wheels have been refurbed back to their original colour though.

The wheels are hard to find in the right fitment and in 17", they are the wheels I wanted but I bought F1 cups (well what I thought were cups) because I thought I would never find a set of these in 17" and the right fitment.
I had to buy another set of wheels in 15" and a 5 stud fitment to get the centre caps and the studs that go round the rim, because the studs in my wheels have been filled and need to be drilled out. I was lucky enough to get the 15's cheap on ebay. It***8217;s going to take a bit of work to get the wheels back up to standard but when I do they will hopefully look ace!

Cheers for the comments guys! I probably should have started a poll with this thread, I don***8217;t think I can add one now though?
