I have some OEM 2011 Impreza STI wheels on my Hawk, but they came without centre caps.

Bloody Centre Caps! 2010STIbasewheelweb
2011 STi Enkei
Size: 18x8.5"
Offset: +55
Bolt pattern: 5x114.3
Wheel Weight: 23.55 lbs (thanks to NASIOC member nashelton)
OEM-equipped tire size: 245/40R18
Notes: This wheel was also offered on the 2010 STI Special Edition, in a darker color.

I bought some 59mm ones from eBay for £12 hoping they would fit, here

They are very, very loose and dont appear to clip in properly.  I've left them on but imagine as soon as I hit a bump they will come off.  Any suggestions? Go bigger to 60mm or more, or is it because they are too large and should go further in? Alternatively do you think they fit poor as they are Chinese, non-oem ones?  I've contacted Subaru parts desk and they dont know the size of their OEM caps, I've even cheekily approached folk on ebay selling the same wheels asking them to measure theirs for me - no response.

Bloody things will cost me a fortune by the time I find the right fit through trial and error  Brickwall

Yeah, no sweat though pal as there may be more to it.  NASIOC member put;

I could be talking out of my ass here but I believe that Enkei uses a different size center cap on OEM wheels than on their normal wheels.

I believe from some measurements people have taken that the centercap tapers in so the Diameter of the face is ~59mm with the inner diameter around the same size of the hub bore at 56.1mm.

This is all from memory and I could be wrong, but I hope it helps.

I would suggest just getting them from the Subaru Parts counter but they are 33USD a pop here so 132USD for 4 caps is outrageous.

You could wrap some insulation tape round the clip part of the caps for a quick fix, make them a tighter fit until you get some others?
