Alloy Wheel Centre Caps

Hi,
What alloy wheel centre caps should I have for Sei Sporting alloys, the ones I have at the moment rattle at low speed as they are very loose in the wheel , they are Fiat caps as far as I can tell. Didn't realise they were rattling until I had the windows open at the weekend when we had some warm weather for a change......

thanks
Paul T

Re: Alloy Wheel Centre Caps

Do they fit OK Paul? If you refit them, do they fit nicely or are they a bit of a pain? Also, were they fitted to the alloys when you bought them?

Re: Alloy Wheel Centre Caps

Hi,
They start to fit in ok but once in they are too loose, I was wondering if there were two types available or something , they have "Fiat" badge and came with the alloys.....

Not really an important problem just a pain thats all........maybe I'll stick a rubber O ring on with them.......

Thanks
Paul T
