    Plastic Bolt cover for alloys

    I have an 06 plate phantom black A3 2.0TDi SE, I've owned the car less than 3 weeks and am tidying it up a little (previously a company car)
    The plastic wheel bolt covers are quite tatty and I'd like to replace them.
    I've found some on ebay, but I am unsure as to the correct size.
    My wheels are 16''and the wheel bolts are circular with an outside diameter of 25mm
    The plastic cover has a circular outside diameter of 25mm with a 17mm (across flats) hexagonal nut shape on the inside. The removal security socket is also 17mm
    Do I therefore order 17mm replacements?
    Sorry if I'm asking a stupid question, but I don't want to buy the wrong size
    Thanks for any help

    Your best bet would be to contact the seller and explain everything to him as you did to us.

    Or go to Audi or any other VAG dealer and buy some for only a few pennies

    Thanks for help
    By chance I'd removed the security bolt cover, all the others are normal 17mm covers so all is well
    Thanks again

    I've sorted the confusion out, it was me taking security bolt cover off and assuming they were all the same !
    Could anyone tell me where I might get black covers for the bolts?
    I've looked on various sites, and can only seem to find Grey ones or black ones without the security bolt covers included
    I'd like a set of 16 plain hex nut covers, and 4 of the round security bolt covers
    Thanks : )

    I got the ones on ebay, they are 17mm correct sir, just make sure if you have locking wheel nuts he sends 16 normal ones and 4 rounded ones for the lockers. (assuming you have OEM lockers) I got the silver ones, came with a removal tool too, all genuine Audi
