      Factory Style Center Caps for BBS Wheels?

      Hey all,

      I have been considering picking up a set of BBS aftermarket wheels for the S90.

      I have never been one to like that aftermarket/modder look though.

      Bacause of this I have been thinking of ways of fitting factory center caps, you know these, to the BBS wheels.

      The problem is that Volvo factory wheels have a 60mm hole for the center caps, but BBS wheels seem to have 56mm center caps.

      Is anyone aware of any aftermarket center caps with the Volvo design that will fit? Or maybe there is some way to buy the kit above from IPD and somehow mod it to fit?

      I'd appreciate any ideas.

      Not sure if this helps or not but Dave Barton has a site that has a lot of unusual Volvo items (mostly for older Volvo's - I got stuff from him for by 240 - but maybe some items are of use in our newer cars - prancing mooses!?). He has a page for centercaps which includes stickers you might be able to put on other center caps. Unfortunately Dave has fallen foul of a clampdown by Volvo on its copyright/trademark so the Volvo logoed stuff is no longer available but there is still some interesting stuff nevertheless.

      Another option is to visit your local vinyl shop and have new ones printed to fit your caps. In the MINI world there are hundreds of cap decal designs available and a few of the shops do custom work.

      I wonder how good that would look, considering the fact that the modern Volvo center-caps are not flat.

      I'm wondering if I can dremel off the bottom and somehow attach them to the clips that come with the BBS center caps and make it work somehow. They would protrude a couple of mm instead of being flush with the face of the wheel, but it might not look bad...
