Spinner caps are very special hub caps or hub caps or hub caps for the car or even the motorcycle. They come in different designs and are mounted on the wheel hub, exactly in the middle of the wheel. The special thing about them is that they are can not be turn with the wheel, but are mounted so that they can either rotate freely, or stand firmly. In the latter case, the hub cover remains in the same position even when the wheel is turning. The gimmick from the factory, for example, the Rolls-Royce Phantom but also in the stock of BMW M Performance you will find the small accessory.
Why Spinner Caps?
In autotuning, we like to borrow words from English because that sounds cool and international. But we do not always borrow the exact right word. Googling spinner caps with the English language setting will give you results that will turn you into a small toy that you can spin in your hand. The spinner caps are the discs in the middle and around which the toy turns. At first glance, this seems to have little to do with your car, but to be more precise, it is very apt. Spinner is derived from the word to spin, rotate. Caps means caps. Just like the toy, the car wheel turns very fast while the fixed hub cover is a cap that stops in the middle and at the same time protects the wheel hub from dirt. It is exactly this resting that makes the Spinner Caps so popular with us. Surely you have already noticed that with fast rotation all patterns and spots on a wheel distort visually to stripes. This may be desired, for example, in rims. But if you have a logo or an inscription on your bike, you might want it to remain visible. You can achieve this with a fixed hub cap. Spinner Caps are primarily used to assemble and promote brand logos and emblems on car wheels.
It's also turning
What you often find when searching for spinner caps on English autotuning websites are so called Spinner Wheels, To make the confusion complete, these are called in German Spinning Wheels, spinning wheels. They rotate freely, independently of the wheel itself. If your car stops and the wheel stops spinning, a spinning wheel continues to rotate. That looks very cool, but is prohibited according to the German road traffic regulations. This does not mean that you can not buy them and mount them on your car, but then you can not use this car on public roads in Germany anymore.
Spinner Caps for your car
Spinner Caps you can occasionally buy in the normal car accessory trade. They look attractive and are not expensive. At the moment, however, they are limited to the Rolls-Royce and BMW brands. We could not find universal spinner caps for the wheel hub in a German online shop. If you should find some, then you have to make sure that you mount them well and correctly, as a part suddenly releasing itself from the wheel during the ride can easily cause an accident. If in doubt, let them be assembled by your professional car tuner. We hope you the info report to the term Spinner Caps Hubcap from the field of autotuning.
