HRE Center caps??

Just got my new P40 black wheels today and not really thrilled about the plastic center cap. Anyone found a black cap option? Was hoping to something in metal as well. cheers,

An OEM option or HRE option? If OEM, check out the following link to Wheel Enhancement, a sponsor of this site.

Hope this helps!

Yeah, the shiny/chrome plastic center caps that came with my P40's didn't thrill me either (especially since my wheels were in the brushed finish). I went back with my Porsche OEM center caps. I'll be interested in what you find.

I think nothing looks better than the Porsche crest caps - on a Porsche, anyways. JoeShark's car is a model of gorgeous elegance.

Suncoast has some black caps that look good - OEM. I'm thinking they might even provide a nice contrast on a black car against the silver wheels...maybe. Or it could look dorky. Gotta photoshop a demo to see how it looks.

Thanks for the compliment Steve.

The other reason I stayed with the OEM caps is because they match the OEM colored hood crest on my car. The HRE caps were chrome/black and I felt that if I went with them, I'd have to go with the silver/black Porsche hood crest to balance things out.

Black cap for Fuchs
Hub cap for Fuchs with groove inside 70mm center hole. Factory satin black painted finish for black center wheels.

would the color match satin or matte black..?

My HRE dealer had these made for me. Much better than chrome. Also painted the bolts, balancing weights and hub black.
