P SLOT alternative (small) caps (could swap for 3 std ones?)

Post by ghost123uk » Tue Oct 04, 2011 6:52 pm

I have 4 Pirelli P slots but only 3 of the plain full size centre caps :twisted:

However I like the look of them without the full size caps and have seen on ebay a set for sale with small "centre nut only" caps with a VW logo on them ( see item number 200658206454 )

Anyone know which ones like that will fit ? (with slight modding if required)

After I sort this my 3 full size caps will be up for grabs, in fact anyone fancy a swap, 4 small VW center only caps that will fit for 3 original P slot caps ?

Did these fit OK with or without modification?

Do you have any pictures please?

Yep that's what I fitted and I like the look of them :)
No pics as of yet as in this weather the car is always filthy dirty, even after a wash and then drive home ! ( I live in the muddy countryside :) )

Check the size tho (my car is not here at the mo so I cannot measure the internal hole diameter but I think it WAS 60mm)

I saw the same set up on another Rocco on the net and the guy had painted the whole of the internal dished bit of the wheel, like where the wheel bolts are, black and that looked good too with those centre caps. In fact either way I reckon it looks better than with the standard full size plastic P slot covers.
