Hello all!

A few days ago, some...one stole my 4 center caps (or hubcaps, or whatever... those plastic circles with the Mazda logo).

My mazda3 is the european version 165cv with 18" rims. I have bought ones in Internet (aliexpress), with many comments saying that are compatible with 2017 M3. However for me is almost impossible to install them, like the inner diameter is around 2 milimeters narrower.

What is the problem? Am I not applying force enough? Or the measurements are different from 17" to 18" wheels?

If someone can tell me where I can buy them for my specific model, I would appreciate it... My official Mazda dealer have them for 50€, but I find it absolutely expensive...

Thank you!!

Aftermarket ones on ebay and aliexpress do not work because they are not deep enough to hook around the wheel. You're just going to have to suck it up and pay oem prices.

I am shocked someone would go through the trouble to do that as they are a pain to take off when the wheel is off the car.
Were your wheels all marred up? I may have a set of silver ones.

Price on OEM center caps is $7.01 US each. Pretty cheap if you ask me.
