TSW Nurburgring Centercap Fit Fix

Got my 18x9.5 Nurburgrings yesterday and ran into the issue with the centercap which I have seen others post about. The dust cap on the spindle sticks out too far to allow the centercaps to sit flush. I read that some have used a dremel tool to fix the problem, so I gave it a try. I am posting a pic of mine hoping it may help others.

Good tip, thanks.

Looking at these wheels w/polished face in 18x8 and 18x10, myself.

Have you got the Brembo pkg?

I don't, but wondering if the these 18's will clear big brakes if I later decide to purchase a pair of Baer 6S Bearclaws.

I dremelled way more than that and it still doesn't fit perfect... the dust cap actually extends further than the center cap. So I dremelled the drilled the hole put the cap on and it fits... but when I put the TSW symbol/sticker on it doesn't...

Not sure I did a great job explaining it...

I know when I was researching wheels, there was a fair anount of info about the TSWs and Brembos. Since I don't have them, I didn't pay attention to whether the 18s would work or not.
