Default Wheel Centres

Hi Guys,

My Saab Aero wheel centres have gone practically black with dirt/brake dust. Are the original ones clip in's or are they simply stickers?

Am tempted with some replacement sticky ones from ebay - anyone have any experience of them?

Many thanks

You can get the 3m headlight polishing kits and bring them back to their original luster.

If your not pressed for time just buy 3m rubbing compound and a cloth, sit down and ploish them by hand while watching TV. Thats what i did.
Miles to Date: 178,000 ish No major problems, Replaced My 1st set of breaks @ 130,000, they lasted for ever. Door handels are now grey, badges are chipped, rubber inside is pealing bad and im on my 4th windshield. Only real problem was a new gas cap and wheel bearing and ac blower. Also dealer replaced broken front springs. SWEET!!!

I used Meg's scratch X to put back the shine. Of course they are faded a little and there is the odd chip. When I buy some new wheels, I might by the wheel emblems at the same time.

Incidentally, I remember seeing some carbon fibre effect saab emblems in the carbon fibre foil thread. Might be worth a look.
