    Hello all,

    Few days ago I let winter tires fitted for my car (W211, E320 CDI). The wheels are just universal 16 inch steel wheels which looks agley without the wheel caps. Any one knows where to buy such plastic wheel caps online?

    Thanks & regards,

    Robert

    Do you mean wheel trims? If so the halfrauds do some nice ones and hold a good range.

    Then all car shops sell the plastic hub caps, they even have them in Lidl have them at £10 per set

    All you can do there is to look on Ebay for some 124/210 hub caps

    Yup Televisions right. If it was me I would just get some nice trims for the winter wheels though as I think you might have a job on finding the centre caps for those.

    I have a brand new set of 16" wheel trims if your interested I will list them in the for sale section. They are not mercedes branded though.

    Edit: I just saw your in the Netherlands. Look online at car acessory stores, ebay etc.

    You'll be lucky finding reasonably priced ones this time of year unless cheap aftermarket ones.

    I remember buying some for my then golf, wished I'd just left the black steel rims as it actually looked better

    Many thank to all of you for trying to answer my question. I could find one type of aftermarket caps here in The Netherlands which cost about €60,- per set (see photo). It looks reasonable to me but still I did not see them in reality. I am thinking to go next week and see if they are really looking OK then I will but them.

    Regards,

    Robert

    i wouldnt bother, for a little bit more money (or less) you could get a nice set of alloy wheels instead which should look better and outlast the plastic covers

    even second hand ones in good condition would look good on your car
