I love my 2013 TT, but I hated the fake bling rings on the wheels. Some have filled in the empty holes with the original 8mm bolts and #31 Danco o-rings, but the screws still stick out and are too long.

After researching what to fill in the threaded holes with, I came to this conclusion:







I ordered 100 for $10 and gently tapped them into place with a rubber mallet, after cleaning and painting the threads. The color and texture match the wheels perfectly, almost an OEM look.

Does look better, but they do serve a purpose, guarding against rocks and whatnot scraping up past the tire.... For DD-ing to work or whatever I guess they would not be an issue.

Finally got Toyota to fix my 55-65 mph steering wheel vibration with the E-Rated BFG Tires on the TT model. Seems E-Rated tires might be too sensitive for the steering, and are overkill for the weight of this vehicle.

Switched to Goodyear Duratrac 265/75R16 C-Rated tires and the road force numbers on the 3rd harmonic are in the single digits now, and the steering vibration is gone!!!
