These align the center of the wheel to the hub and relieve stress from your wheel studs. Doesn't matter if the hub has an axle driving it or not. They serve the same function front and rear.

Check the Gruppe-s TC105N thread - initial samples are in the works with production shortly after assuming no problems, and it looks like they may be available in 4 colors (well, 3 + raw.)

I have to shop around to find a place that'll do a custom anodize at a reasonable price 'cause I think I need blue caps to match the detail on my race numbers. (yeah, I'm not spoiled or anything...)

As mentioned, you want them up front too. Plus, they look sharp. I think especially good with the new design, assuming it all works out as I think it's going to.

No shit. I already have hubcemtric rings, I just need caps for the rears to keep the weather out.

I only have the one set. Time is being granted to keep quality and cost in line, I think. I suspect the updated prototypes are due pretty soon, and assuming those are good to go, production pieces will follow.

I was getting quotes of $500+ for one set of four (volume helped the outer pieces price) getting them custom made... I kind of gave up - the logistics of stocking a part line this just isn't my thing, so the price remained unreasonable. This is a lot of work the Gruppe-S, but I think the wait will be worth it.

I love the @Gruppe-s Center caps for the tc105n.

They look way better than the factory center caps.

Thanks Gruppe-s for fast shipping, and building a great product.

i bought might from footworkautosport. i believe they get it from Gruppe-S as well. It took two weeks to get to me but it was well worth the wait.

Thanks, I just got these wheels for a red 2017 BRZ/ Performance Pack I just bought and wanted these caps, couldn’t figure out how to purchase straight from Gruppe-s but found them on www.footworkautosport.com $35 each plus shipping

I have gunmetal wheels coming and ordered black caps. Will post pictures when mounted.

Just got my car, new to forums, planning to build an STX autocross car. My son has a 2013 HyperBlue #1/500 BRZ and we plan to build cars together.
