I have some OZ wheels on my car at the moment, as I have the others waiting for a refurb. I'm quite liking the OZ wheels, apart from the centre caps.

I've had a surf, but can't find anything that provides a solution, so I'm wondering if anyone else has solved this already?

The OZ centres are convex and measure about 63mm, while the OEM centres are concave and measure about 76mm, so a straight swap isn't possible.

Pics below. Thanks for any help.

There are different diameter Porsche centre caps, but the easiest it to get some vinyl stickers made.

They look like .1 turbo caps?

Yes, I have 19" Turbo wheels on my C4S.

Any suggestions on getting stickers made up?

Make sure you let us know how good they are.

I bought some new cheapo Porsche centre caps after a wheel refurb, and the first Porsche crest fell out on the drive home, followed by two more in the next week frustrated

My original 996 centre caps were a direct fit to my OZ wheels.

The outer diameter was about 65mm.

When I ordered my Oz wheels I specified the exact sizes (just copied dimensions of the RS wheel) and "Porsche Fitment" - which they assured me did take a regular Porsche centre cap - which it does.

Well, the stickers arrived today. Quality is good, but I should have ordered slightly larger, so if I keep them on I'll get some more.

I'm also still in 3 or 4 minds about which way to go. I think the silver on the fake centre lock is too busy.

my vote goes for without the fake centre locks, i think it just looks cleaner. Also i know these are not genuine OEM caps and might be too big with the measures you have given, but for a few £ they might be worth a shot.
