Anybody else steal "chromes" as a kid

In 5th grade there was a huge fad around school called stealing "chromes." Chromes referred to the metal valve caps on car tires. Kids would go around taking them off everyone's cars and showing them off at school. Some were cool like skulls or 8 balls.

The bmx bike thread got me thinking about this, because we would always put the caps on our bike tires. Were we the only middle school doing this??

My dad caught a kid doing that shite and threw a full fountain drink at him and knocked him off his bike. I never understood the fad with that stupid shite.

Nope, never heard of this. Sounds stupid. Glad I went to a decent school without hoodlums.

I do remember this. There was a kid in my fifth grade class who had a collection of "chrome caps".

Always seemed stupid to me.
Probably because it was.

Off cars and off bikes. I wasn't really into that but some of the kids in my neighborhood were.

The ones who were tended to say "brah" a lot...

A guy caught me taking the chromies of his truck once outside of Don Carters back in the day, he was a bad looking dude too, scared the shite out of me....never stole another one after that.
