@ameridan @Kantarserkan Was this confirmed that the center caps on the Lusso are 45mm. I bought some center caps before reading this and thought they would fit, they were 56.5mm and they were too big. I see on the link above Center Bore: 54.1 mm (for brand badge). Is that the size I would need to replace the factory fiat center cap emblem with a different one? Where did you get the 45mm number? Is there a spec somewhere? Thanks!

is there a source for abarth logos for the center caps? I've never been fond of the scorpion caps that come on the abarth spider and the 500 abart.

Just do a search on eBay and Amazon. You'll find a variety of Abarth logos, including the old versions. Then again, if you're looking for Abarth logos without a scorpion, that's kind of like looking for water that's not wet. :)

the center bore of the wheel is the wheel to hub interface. it is the center of the hub which indexes the wheel. if you were to purchase aftermarket wheels and the center bore was 75mm, you would purchase a set of hubcentric rings which had a 54.1mm inner diameter and a 75mm outer diameter so the wheels properly index.

I got some metallic stick ons from Etsy in 47mm flat and they fit perfectly. Next size up is 50mm which I think would be too big. $20 for set of 4 including shipping. Here is the link.


The envelope said they came from Portugal so no wonder it took over a month from the time I ordered. After I put the first one on I noticed you could see the edge of the white double stick tape when viewing from close angles. So for the others I used a fine tip sharpie to make the edges black before putting them on.

I got these flat epoxy coated stickers from Kemal Beykoz in Istambul, Turkey . He was selling them on eBay a while back. I put them in place of the “ugly” Konig stickers that came with my Hypergram wheel center caps.

I could not find readymade Abarth logo center caps in the right size for my new wheels. These stickers were a tiny bit too large diameter for the Konig caps. I carefully trimmed about 1mm off of each circle. Just to show that there are different ways to accomplish your objective.

this is what i am thinking about doing.
This is a current project, looking for suggestions. So far I have dremeled out the center of the hub cover from these koing wheels to just be undersized for the stock abarth hub cap, then with a rubber hammer tapped them into each other. I am planning on some sort of adhesive maybe to make sure they don't separate.
Any one done something like this? Or have an idea of how to do it better?
