      I got my new VMR 708 wheels on a few weeks ago and would like to swap out the center caps with OEM Audi Center caps. Does anyone know what part # I need and the best place to buy these? Also can you get them in black?

      Here is a pick of the car sitting on the new wheels and suspension.

      Looking good

      Why not take the center caps out of the stock wheels?

      1. I want to sell the stock wheels as a complete set with the stock center caps
      2. I wasn't 100% sure they will fit the VMR wheels but I assume they will fit?

      Or plastic dip them. Then if you want them black original you can peel the plastic dip off

      Vinyl wrapped oem center caps. I made a set of real carbon fiber ones the same way.

      Granted it was my first carbon fiber project - but they're a bitch to make. Takes three days with all the coats and because of their size they're hard to sand correctly.

      Tell you what though, they're not on my car at the moment because I oversanded one and need to start that cap over again. I'll go ahead and get two more sets and do them at the same time and sell them for the price of materials $70 and put you on the top of the list if you're still interested when they're done which will probably be sometime in September.

      Hugs! I'm assuming all VMR wheels use the same centercap sizes? Would need them before the 26th of Sept. to be safe.

      If you want, I have two sets on order... I usually sell them for $50 shipped. I can do them in either gloss black, 3m Carbon Fibre, light silver or white with black rings. PM me if interested.

      How about Aruba Blue, with the Audi rings remaining chrome? A matte blue might look neat

      I already have the AutoZone blue valve stem caps

      If I can get my hands on the paint I can do it... Costs more for custom orders though

      I need to buy center caps as well for the Talladega's I just took off a friend's Golf R. Can't use the ones with the chrome ring surround.
