Dont know if anyone has done this before but i was getting fed up of not being able to change tyres easily and struggling to find somewhere to get them balanced.

So i thought i would machine them up for centre capsBig grin

Hope the pics work

Machined



Centre cap fitted







Would like to be able to engrave the lion back in but dont currently have a machine to do it.

I may just add GTI 6 for now like on my gear knob but just a bit bigger.

given that the O.P machined the hole himself, taking it to the correct spec to suite that would not be an issue I'd imagine LOL

Hmm didn't think of that, sounds like a good idea. and yeah i can make them to fit aslong as they arent already too big, although i have got a few sets of cyclones around to try it on

I thought about this a few years ago but never got round to it. It was so I could use a Cyclone as a spare and still use the wheel lock.

Think im going to give these a go

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PEUGEOT-ALLOY-WHEEL-CENTRE-CAPS-407-308-307-207-206-107-/320612094636?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4aa5f852ac


Size wise they should fine as they are bigger than i have machined so can open them out

Thats gotta be one of THE most sensible mods ever for a 306!

With the pug centre caps in they look OE
