Ebay center Caps

I want to buy a set of replacement center caps since all my crests have fallen off. How do I know which Size my car takes? my car is an 02 boxster base with 17inch wheels fyi

Ebay has alot of sellers offering sets of 4 caps for 25ish dollars, but they are offered in a few different sizes such as 60mm and 64mm.

My caps measure 130mm in diameter so thats obviously not the measurement they are looking for.

130mm is over 5". I measured mine at about 77 mm, or about 3". I think you need to re-check that measurement.

Know that the $25 sets are cheap Chinese knock-offs. They will last a couple of years before the paint starts to flake off.

Original caps are expensive even on Ebay and be careful with the knockoffs. Just buy the crests. One of my crests fell off so I bought 4 off these ($38 total) and will keep the 3 for spares. They have double-side tape on the back. Good quality and perfect fit.

Don't know how particular you are but my caps have a ring around the crest. Some caps on Ebay don't have this ring.

I like the cleaner look of no ring.

The outer diameter measurement for an oem Porsche center cap is - 3.0" (76mm), and the inner diameter measurement is 2.37" (60mm). My guess is that 60mm or 64mm refers to size of the crest .
