Default Center caps not fitting?

Bought some 18x7.5 +48 offset Rota Subzeros as pictured here:



Went and bought some new tires for these from Les Schwab. They said the rear center caps wouldn't fit when the wheels were mounted but the fronts do. Any remedy to this besides removing the front center caps to make it all equal

Thanks in advance!

It's not that they're broken, they're fine. Its the center hub that is sticking too far out to even let the caps sit in place without barely being on. Read other topics saying to take a dremel to the back of the caps or order others?

I guess I'll have to. Just curious since I see a lot of other people on here with these wheels and wonder if it's the caps or the car itself.

There are a couple styles of center caps. It looks like you have the flatter ones. Rota has domed caps that would give you more clearance.

I would contact Dan @ wheeldude.com to get the proper center caps.
