Center Caps

Post by Michael2009Vibe » Sun Oct 06, 2019 7:06 am

I purchased a 2009 Vibe that was missing 2 center caps. I replaced all 4 with black Pontiac center caps. What do you think?

Are they popped in tightly to where they won't fall out? One of our 2009 Vibe Gt's gets its wheels swapped out every winter for winter tires and the caps have to be removed for storage reasons. They have never fell off yet and they've been on/off now for eight winters and they still fit snugly. Plus considering that it's my son's car and he drives like a maniac ! :o

The chrome center cap looks better on the wheels, but the black is just fine.

So far no problems with them falling out. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
