    Hi,

    I'm after some inserts for my alloys as the previous owner decided to put alloy cleaner on them. This has caused them to melt/bubble as they are plastic.

    They are the same as the ones in this photo.

    Don't really want to go to a stealer though as I guess they'll be overpriced.

    Hey BB, you can have my old ones if you want, I was gonna chuck them out as they are hideous, OEM caps make a huge difference to the overall wheel.
    My wheels are Rochford reps, so no guarantee they'll fit, but the OEM caps fitted ok with a quick trim to the fins on the back.
    Let me know if you want them?

    Also the OEM caps don't perish with wheel cleaner.
    Total rip off at £17 each, but worth saving up for.

    I trimmed about 5mm off the metal ring so that it isn't constantly trying to push outwards. Mine don't move at all.

    Where can I find OEM inserts? Been looking on the net for a few days now? The pics above look really good.
