hi, i've aquired some standard trims for my sx.

how do these affix to the wheel? as it is the bolts go through the hole and won't hold them on

thanks

The bolts are there for show IIRC, its the small circular rim at the back that is the fixing element. If the bolts arent for show then there will only be one way in which they go on, like all wheel trims just kick them on

tie wrap them for extra security and fitting

i've had another look and three of the holes are small enough to be held on with the bolts.

there isn't any other ring to secure them

however when securing with the three bolts the edge flare out so as not in contact with the wheel

your cinq wheels are 13''

those look like uno or tipo trims to me, they may be possibly 14'' if that is case they wont fit. You will need to take your wheel nuts off, put on the trims then refit your wheel nuts

the one with the big mark looks water damaged, would have possibly not bought these

i've just measured thwem and they are 13.5 ". :rolleyes:

they look fine from the front. i don't think the mark has damaged them
