HRE Metal Billet Center Caps

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
USD 250.00

Item Interest
Hi all,

Purchased a set of used HRE C20 a couple of weeks ago, in great shape. They came with metal center caps. The reason I'm selling them is because my car and wheels are both grey, so I'd like more color and "downgrade" to the plastic red & blue plastic center caps. I was talking to one of the HRE reps and he said that these are no longer available. The new style engraved caps cost $100 new (each!!).

As you can see, they are in great shape.
Cap 1:


Cap 2:


Cap 3:


Cap 4:


The back of caps actually lock to the wheels. They look something like this, but I think mine is actual bolts:


Selling for $250 Paypal'ed and shipped (to continental USA). I'm also open to trades for other HRE caps (color though, not monochrome). These are very unique IMO and would gladly keep them if I don't find buyers.

GLWS, I miss these rims. Those caps really were much better than the cheap plastic. They also stay in on the track.

Can't tell you how long I've looked at pics of your cars before I pulled the trigger. I love these C20. Too bad they are almost impossible to photograph, they look so much better in real life.

I really like these caps too, but I just want more color since my car has lots of grey colors right now (want red/white/blue caps). But at the same time I refuse to pay $100 for another set of billet caps.

Are you saying the plastic ones pop out?

Yes, The plastic ones will pop out on the track due to the extra heat. If you do go to the track I would just take them off (which you should always do with any center cap anyways)

The red/white/blue will look great and the contrast will be perfect for your car. Here is how it use to look with those caps.

Yep, that's the exact picture I kept looking over and over again haha. I think I'll keep these as I think it's pretty cool to have the caps that came with the wheels, and just purchase the plastic ones.

Thanks for advice on taking them off when driving hard.

Thanks Rob. I'll probably keep them, got quite a few compliments yesterday at a car meet. Thanks again for an awesome set of wheels man, they've completely transformed my car.

Got the new ones in and love them, so these can go. No need for 2 sets of caps.

Price drop to $200 shipped.

Great let me know. When I was talking back and forth with the HRE salesman, he said that these are no longer made (billet with logo printed on them).

Took these pics a while ago, figured I'd post them. This is what the back of my caps look like.

Not desperate to sell, but in case anyone is interested, let me know and maybe we can work out a deal.
