Hey guys,

First time posting here..

On the weekend I bought some EMPI center caps for my beetle, they dont fit, I later realized the ones I was actually after have indentations to allow for the rim where the wheel bolt goes through. (See picture.)

Does anyone know where to get these ? I am sticking with the EMPI's for now, I can beat them through the rim with a rubber mallet, in doing so creating my own custom "Indentations' Razz If anyone knows the brand or a store stocking them I'd be super grateful.

Cheers.. Ben.

I'm running the Empi caps. Just put the caps on the studs, then put the wheel on. Tighten each lug a little at a time until its snug then torque them down in the process creating "custom indentations" without a mallet.
