Wheel centres dont fit
I fitted 14 inch classic wheels to my 2018 360. The centre caps as sold by CC fit fine on the rear wheels but are too shallow to fit the front. Is this normal? Any ideas?.

I guess that at the front you would need something like the Miniator center cap to clear the center nut.

Have the hubs changed as front uprights and brakes did from late 2013. Guess sell two lots of caps ?

Uprated stub axle with modern seals has a much bigger hub nut and no grease cap.

I got a dremel and trimmed the inside centre of the cap, on mine the plastic was thick enough to give clearance. There mustn't be any split pin projecting, so I cut off the excess with a hacksaw after using a punch to make sure it was well folded back in the slot.

Hope this helps
