    Amazing wheels. Can't run them with centre caps on a daily basis though, which is why I sold mine!

    The whole centre cap is SO easy to nick it's crazy and a new set of 4 is £600!

    Here you go...

    So is there no way that this can be prevented then Dan? what did you do just run the centres when you knew the would be safe parked up?

    Yes mate, litrally put them on for photos and trips to work, as our works car park is dead safe.

    They can be pulled off SO easily, easier than a dustcap can!

    One centre cap with fixings and badge is £148 or something. Didnt fancy replacing 4 of them!

    Im not even from a rough area, its nice round here, but people get close to look at the fact there Bentley and then realise it just pulls off. Nice little souviner!

    Thats the whole reason I sold them mate, just couldnt run them with caps and look POO without! On a plus note, ive got 2 spare caps, which I bought off ebay. Was going to try gather a spare set of 4!

    Cheers Ash m8 do you think it would look daft getting my style bentley in akoya also with it being one piece as the above bentley have the polished rim to split it all up?

    I dont think it would be. There quite a few different shades of Akoya Silver as Matt Andrews found out when he did the 8P2 single grille conversion. I'd just go for a slight different shade of akoya and have some more flakes added. So it stands out and doesnt blend in with the body work.

    Are the wheels the same shade as the bodywork?
