Are the Vw caps smaller? Can you measure your replica wheel to see what ID cap size it needs?

Same here. VW caps on Porsche 18" wheels. No problem.

Found the solution in China. 14 days to get here but well worth it. Sorry for the crappy Iphone pics.

Sooo. Just to warn others.... Yes. the link Bryan provided worked. Fit perfectly! yay.


But 12 hours later........ Lost one of the stickers . Concave on convex doesnt work well - even with a load of hot glue.

If you get these I suggest pulling off the stickers and applying your own epoxy to hold them on better. But they looked good while it lasted.

You could always do what I did and get a graphics company to put a vinyl of the VW sign over the existing Porsche sign. Mine survived all winter and have zero damage

If it makes any difference I had the supplier provide me with VW caps that have lasted quite awhile. I had the 20" Porsche replica wheels and I am sure I got them from Stock Wheel Solutions. Have some pretty Porsche caps that just need a car to put them on.
