    Hmm mine fit tight as hell. No lighting showing outside the knobs. I would send them back @Kbuds2000 and @007WillyWoo

    A lot of play on mine as well. I may try some Teflon tape or something to make it fit tighter

    I love the description:

    • 100% Brand New and Good Quality.
    • Nice Decoration: The interior ring allows light to shine through from the dashboard, more beautiful in darkness.
    • Made of high quality aluminium alloy and plastic material, durable, dirt-proof and stylish. Non-slip design & feel good with its sensual enjoyment.
    • Easy to install, you can install by yourself, just take out the original knob, then insert the new one.
    Good Quality - Check
    Sensual Enjoyment - Hell yea- things just keep getting better and better :laugh:

    Huh, didn't expect such a variety of fitment issues. I bought mine off Amazon for quicker shipping even though they're cheaper on eBay. Mine fit perfectly with pretty much no play, only issue is they they emit too much light sometimes.

    You can cut small circle of a sandwich bag and use between knob and shaft

    I put small witness marks on mine with a paint pen so I could see during the day time. Also I used some teflon tape to keep them snug.

    I bought the same ones recently and they fit nice and tight. Really had to push them on there. They also seem to give a little more weight to turning them, which feels nice. The stock ones felt kinda light and cheap.
