How to Measure the Wheel Center Caps


When you came to buy the wheel center caps
You may face the following situations:


1 OEM parts lost or damaged.
2 You changed a new hub and still want a hub cap that matches the apperance of your car.
3 This is the first car in your life. You are going to replace the wheel parts and give it a new look, make it look different.



Solution:

1
Let's first define a few dimensions so you can see what I am going to say next.

Measure the outer diameter(O.D) from the front of the cap, as this is the widest portion of center cap. The outer diameter is the max measurement to cover the wheel. Measured in a straight line.

Place a caliper(Necessary) across the opening on the backside of the cap to measure the inner diameter(I.D). The inner diameter is the distance between the furthest two snap clips of center caps. Measured in a straight line.

Measure the length of clips, which is about the same as the depth of center cap. If no special circumstances, this dimension is not too different.
2 If you happen to have no OEM parts, you can not measure it, then you can ask a supplier for the center cap sizes, including outer diameter, inner diameter and clip length. It should be noted that the centerbore doesn't necessarily mean the size of wheel center caps. The centerbore of a wheel is the size of the hole in the back of the wheel that centers it over the mounting hub of the car.

You can also measure them by yourself.

This is a picture of a hub being cut in the middle and we can clearly see the difference between the outer diameter, the inner diameter and the center bore.


3 Replica is a great solution to replacing OEM center caps and enhancing the look of your wheels. RhinoTuning is expert at replacement center caps with various styles.

Normally the fitted center caps are determined by these 2 important sizes: O.D and I.D. Some has the steel rings and some doesn't. The function of the steel rings is to support the weak plastic clips to ensure it won't break during the installation. So if the cap is made of high quality plastic, the steel rings are not required.
