    PSA: BMWs new floating center caps do not fit ZHP wheels (36122455269)

    Just letting everyone know. BMW just came out with new center caps that stay upright, kind of like the Rolls Royce center caps. I thought they were pretty subtle and neat so I ordered some. The various sources I found them at (one linked here) says the E46 is compatible, but I think that is only for the diameter. Our ZHP wheels seem to be too shallow for these to work. Since the caps have a thick weight behind them they bang into the wheel hub when you attempt to press them on. They are really neat, but Im not too broken up about it. Oh well. Save your money.

    Your guess would be as good as mine. These seem to be pretty high quality caps. The weight on the back of the cap is pretty thick so you have to make sure you have enough room behind it for them to clip onto the wheel successfully.

    Shame, as now my old caps look rather old and worn, haha I might order new stock caps just so I have something new there.

    I am not sure just yet. I did send a message to bimmerworld explaining the situation. If they offer a refund for me to send them back I might do that.

    I doubt it’s worth keeping them as I could always buy them again if I ever get another BMW

    If you run spacers, would this be a problem?

    If that means it would give a little more space between the outside of the wheel and the hub then yes it might solve the issue.. I am not sure how big of a spacer you would need, though.
