New non OEM wheel centres

Post by Kleynie » Tue May 12, 2020 8:08 pm

Bought these on line from Reason Porsche in Ipswich, they turned up today and they look to be decent quality. I will fit them tomorrow and report back. Only 40 quid, so I was not expecting much.

These are the chrome ones for the 21” 911 style wheels.

have had sets of ebay for £20 in the past, corrode at the same pace as OEM ones, and for 8 times less

Have not seen the alternative version in Black Satin as yet, only gloss black.

Well they are not a great colour match, a bit too chrome:

Caps come in chrome or silver (or black or grey) with either monochrome badges or colour badges.

I bought two non OEM sets on Ali Express and the colour match for the Macan is very good. I suspect you have chrome rather than silver and silver would be a better match

The caps on Ali Express do not show the Porsche logos, I guess for copyright reasons. The badges are stuck on rather than painted on but about 1/20th of the OPC price and they look pretty good

I'd remove them before taking the car to an OPC though as they might remove them if they are infringing copyright

The silver ones are very different, I have them on my winter wheels. The originals are definitely chrome.
