What size wheel cap do I need?

Hey guys

I have some WSP W765 wheels on the way and in anticipation I'm looking to get in some BMW badge caps to replace the WSP caps that come as standard.

Am I right in thinking that 'CB' is the size of the diameter. http://www.wspitaly.com/catalogo-pro...Gun-Metal.html

What size cap should I be looking for? The BMW caps on Ebay seem to be 68mm. Will they fit?

Thanks for your help!

No CB= Center bore. Most of the time it is the same as wheel hub size like 72.6.

It has nothing to do with center cap size.Basically you have to measure the size of center cap yourself when you get them and then start looking the right size cap.

Ah So that means I can't fit em till I have measured, ordered and received caps in post. I may just leave the standard on then for the time being!

Pretty much. Or try asking from wsp what is the size of center cap.
