    So during the weekly wash tonight when it came to the alloys I noticed that the 4 rings badges on the centre of the alloy were sticking out slightly, so much so that I could grab them with my fingers and they came off with no effort at all, I checked them all and 3 out of 4 alloys had the same problem, the fourth sitting flush with what looked like no way of getting them off.

    I've attached a few pictures to see what I'm on about and I've taken the 3 badges off for the meantime as I dont want then falling off while on the move! Has anyone else noticed this?

    Will you glue them on or get them replaced by the dealers?

    To be fair I'll probably try and remove the glue tabs that are there (may prove difficult due to how fragile they look) but if I glue them on at least I know they won't be coming off again

    That's not a great look without the rings wonder what's caused that ?

    I replaced all 4 of my centre caps recently as they rattled - if you put your hand on the centre they would wobble from side to side - only been off 3 times for when I painted hubs, changed springs and tyres so no idea what caused that.
