A hub caps are installed on the wheel of the vehicle and serve two major functions: first is to keep the vehicle's wheel look uniquely beautiful and second is to protect the hub from dirt caused by road debris.
The hub caps are used interchangeably with the wheel cover since they are both located and installed at the wheel of the vehicle. The wheel cover or also known as the "dog dish" covers the entire wheel. This is good when owners want to improve the image of their wheel without replacing and buying a new set. Wheel covers alone will do the job by concealing the entire wheel. It is at the same time functions as a protective shield of the original wheel from dirt and other road debris. The hub caps on the other hand only cover the hob of the wheel leaving the original wheel visible. The hub is the center part of the wheel where the bolts are located. Some hub caps posses the emblem of the VW which makes it look more beautiful.
Volkswagen hub caps are offered in different variety. Customized hub caps are also available. Volkswagen Passat Hub Cap
