I see a bunch of people swapping out center caps and opting for the small cap exposing the lug bolts.

I like the idea so im considering these as they match my Fuel door

What dimensions do i need? i keep hearing different things and would like to order the right set the first time.

60mm I believe is what you're after but the way the clips/ring on the back side of the caps may be a factor.

I beleive it's the stock Abarth 17" wheel center caps that will fit. Those 60mm caps will not. The inside where the cap snaps in is only about 45mm IIRC.

Rob...(zonker), I believe used 60mm caps and they fit which is what I was referring to but I'd check with him on it before purchase.

I love your Abarth Fuel door.
How did you do that ?
Plastic dip outside, Paint inside ?

I recall measuring mine(17" wheels) and I'm pretty certain the inside diameter was right around 45mm. The 60mm caps need 55-57mm to snap in. I ended up using them on my TSW Mallory wheels as the wouldn't fit my 17's.
I'm in Dallas right now, but I'll measure them when I get home.

The more I think about it the more I think this was likely a different wheel I am thinking of...my apologies. I only have the 17in so I couldn't measure and offer any size measurements personally.

Just curious as to if anyone got the size on this? I have stock 16's and want to take the big caps off and put the smaller ones on exposing the lugs...

link please? got this a while ago (http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=161686843686). it didn't fit, it's just a tad too big. it was listed as 60mm diameter. but I don't have digital calipers to confirm.

hey mikey. got your PM but I'm responding here just in case it helps someone else, too.

I got caps from eBay which fit perfectly. I no longer have a live link but do a search for 4x New 60mm / 58mm Alloy Wheel Center Centre Hub Caps - PERFECT FITMENT from this seller (http://www.ebay.com/usr/vip-frame?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2754). problem is that they're silver and don't match the gunmetal of the stock 16s. you can solve that easily by putting on some decals/sticker on them.
