Jurrian, these stick over the OEM caps though...no? Kinda confusing as the photo shows no backs (the tabs that snap into the wheel center hole) to them and it states they're full replacements but then says they have adhesive backing. :shrug:

Specifications:

- Full replacement Roundels, crafted from thin aluminum with adhesive backing
- OEM-like fitment
- UV Coating resists yellowing or fading

Your wheel roundel is a 3 piece design:

- Roundel
- Retaining Ring
- Base cap

The roundel is held onto the base cap by the retaining ring, the adhesive part of the roundel is not used. When assembled, the cap will snap back to place in your wheel.

Hey Tom,

So, no need to remove the wheels to install the caps, correct?

Thanks again
