Advan Racing RZ wheel owners - running center caps? Pics?

Hi Everyone,

So I've got gunmetal Advan Racing RZ 19" wheels on my car and I've decided I want center caps. I'm trying to decide between black Advan center caps (flat or low?) or the adapter rings and then buying some BMW center caps (carbon fiber?) and running them. Car is a marrakesh brown 135i with a CF hood and soon to be CF front lip when I get around to installing it.

Anyone with the same rims, are you running center caps? If so, what kind? Where did you purchase from?

Thanks everyone.

To be honest if they are dark gunmetal i'd spring for Low black Advan Center caps...otherwise they contrast a bit too much

i've had both teh gunmetal and now the silver rz's fyi

I'm getting a quote on the Racing Sciences adapter and reversible center caps. I like that you can run them flat or low.

So according to Racing Sciences the 10mm clearance I have won't work with their adapter.

Any idea the best place to buy factory Advan caps from?

Sounds good, thanks Robert.

Do you guys also sell the adapters for Adan RZ's that let you use factory BMW hub caps?

Finally got around to purchasing a set of flat caps off ebay. They fit and look great. I'll take some pics this weekend after I clean the car if anyone wants to see them.

If you are going to buy Advan rims, and run Bmw center caps, you might as well buy a set of Vmr's. If you have authentic Advan's please run the Advan center cap.
