What you need to know about 16-inch wheel trims:

Will they fit my vehicle?

All of these wheel trims are designed to fit 16-inch rims. To find this out you need to look at your vehicle's tyres. We've got a very useful guide to understanding your tyres here but as long as your tyre shows 'R 16' you'll be able to add these wheel trims to your car.

It's also worth mentioning that wheel trims will only work on steel wheels. If you have alloys and are wanting to freshen them up, why not look at getting some alloy wheel cleaner?
