Yay!… Wheel nut cover ordered online (after returned it due to wrong size) has arrived. But the joy was short lived as I stumbled with another issue.

I chose this product because of Peugeot original wheel nut cover is too expensive and sell by the unit. The aftermarket wheel nut cover quality is good but as mentioned above I did found out that it was taller than I expected. Thus, the nut will protrude more instead of flush in the wheel rim.

 
I have no choice but to trim off a bit the nuts but there are 16 of them….

  • Hi bro, mind to share where you buy it ? i am looking for it also

    • I bought it through e-Bay. Scout around local portal sites, you may stumble upon a used unit. It was hard during my time but I saw some one sells it locally.
