Has anyone come across anything similar to these that would fit our cars? The only ones I can find seem to only fit Tiguans from 09-19, I'm assuming because their hub bores are 66.6 and ours are 57.1.

The part #s I've found for the Tiguan caps are:
5N0071456XRW
5N0601169XRW

I have them for my winter steelies. Not sure the part number though. I don't think the hub bore matters though since they attach to the lugs, if the pattern is the se they'll most likely fit.
I agree...they're lugcentric, not hubcentric.

I just looked at the part numbers on VWs site again, 5N0071456XRW is black with chrome VW logo and the 5N0601169 XRW is completely blacked out. They used the same picture for both which might have led to my confusion 😅

It doesn't matter in this case anyway, but the Tiguan has a 57.1mm hub bore, just like our cars.
Weird, I wonder why only Tiguans are listed in the compatible vehicles since they would fit most VWs then :unsure:

Did Tiguans come with steelies on a lower trim level and they used these instead of full hub caps?

Got 2K0601149D as well but they don’t fit my 17“. I‘ve seen them on 16“, but 16“ don’t fit on my GTI

I managed to get them from my local VW dealer yesterday, I was amazed they had them in stock...normally they don’t have anything I need on hand aha.

They snap on to the regular lug nuts great, I’m not sure if it’s clipped onto the security nut but it seems to really be on tight overall. And as with what Porsche does, I aimed the bottom of the W at the valve stem so it’s easier to find with all the black on black.

Any tips for taking them off without breaking the inner clips or scratching the wheels? @jay745 @ZERO815

The same tool as to remove the bolt covers. They can be removed and installed several times without worrying about destroying the clips.

Do these fit on any steelie or does one require the VW steelie - like the chrome hubcaps.
I bought my steelies from Canadian Tire, so they are definitely not VW and they fit perfectly. As long as you have a 5x112 bolt pattern and the OEM lug bolts (I assume) you should be fine

The set I purchased from Tire Rack in 2015(?) needed different bolts. That center cap worked fine with those wheels.
