hi

I have a set of CSA 17" wheels and i want to try and put ford or tickford
centre caps. the diameter of the CSA cap is 55mm on the inside part
that clips into the wheel. the outside of the cap is about 60mm.

does anybody know the size of the ford or tickford alloy wheel centre
caps or if somebody is nice enough to measure their ones for me???

are they CSA prowlers?

u have done a good job with the centre caps.. i have avengers . i want to get rid of the CSA and put the FORD logo there.

i bought some from ford but they are too big.. i think they fit the BA BF xr6/8's measuring 69mm outside and about 59mm inside.
