    Raised center cap - need help

    Hope someone can help me make a measurement.
    For those who have the raised hub cap, could you measure the diameter of JUST THE CHROME EMBLEM portion?
    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you!!! 8-)

    Now here's the thing ... the rim's center cap port opening is ~75mm
    So this raised cap profile tapers down to ~65mm over it's height?
    That's quite a bit ...

    @WhatsoN

    just curious ... the largest diameter (at the mounting point) for your cap is not 75mm, is it?
    was this for an oem or aftermarket rim?

    no matter how i look at it, for the oem raised cap, the bottom mount diameter is 75 and the chrome ring is 65 ...

    or are yours for that bolt hole cover starfish design thing?

    I love them tbh. I have a set for my summer set and also a set for my winters (TSW's Nurburgring in gunmetal with mirror cut) with some silver raised ones. Perfect match and gorgeous. Dont have pictures of them tho lol. But it really makes the TSWs look deeper than they are.

    Here are some pics

    They fit both OEM and aftermarket - i did choose my aftermsrket rims depending on „no center ring needed“

    Maybe it's just me seeing things ... but is the background surface underneath the chrome star slightly curved?
