VW wheel caps on Porsche Rims

Love my Porsche replica wheels but the center caps are a different size than my old Atheros wheels.



I would be willing to do a VW sticker over the cap but they are concave and indented with the Porsche shield shape.

Anyone figure out how to get VW caps on Porsche wheels?

That's strange as my VW caps fitted my Porsche OEM 18" wheels perfectly.

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

The porsche caps are 77mm outer and 60mm inner clip.

My vw caps off my 19s are 77mm outer but 68mm inner clip.

Stickers would work except they are all convex shaped and the porsche caps are concave.

These look as though will fit the ID but are a little smaller with the OD.

It's that time .... Spring time! Even though it's not too warm, it seems to be nice enough so I put the Carrera wheels back on. Love how different a set a wheels can make the Treg Look. Anyone else have Porsche wheels on their Treg??

I know that Porsche and VW are sister company, but I find it off when you install a Porsche center cap on a VW vehicle?
