Default Locking wheel nuts and Centre plates

Does anyone have a good source for the above?

9M recommended getting some '993 style' locking wheel nuts as they are much better....?

Also, with regards to the centre plates (if that is the correct term?) - does anyone know the best place I can get some non-colour ones? Porscheshop do some but seem to want around ú25 PER item......??

You could buy the most basic plastic centre caps and then paint them. Nobody would notice the difference unless they were looking 6inches from them (assuming you use the correct colours).

OTOH Type-911 has this week got (Weekly bargains)
Set of 4 Metal Genuine Porsche Colour Crested Hubcaps.ú72.00 +VAT

Hi Bins

I think I will go with the non-colour ones.....I will post some pics of the car tomorrow hopefully, but I think you will agree that the car with the new wheels on doesn't looks so much pretty as agressive and therefore I am not going to bother with colour centre caps....in fact, I am wondering if I need to have a different finish as the caps are silver and my wheels are...well...NOT silver finish....

Thanks for reply...
