It seems both vehicles already have fairly smooth wheel covers, leaving less room for improvement with completely smooth covers.
Covering the holes in the original covers is another option - done from behind / inside the hubcap, it could be very stealthy.

Rear-wheel skirts will significantly increase the weird-factor.

The manual Perodua has a 5 speed g/box and has nice long gearing. But the auto is only 3 speed and at cruising speed is doing a couple of thousand revs more than the manual!
Those old style automatics are definitely technology from a different era.

It needs new tires, so am thinking of going up a size (approx 2.5%) so I can fit Michelin Energy 3 covers.
If you can, get the Energy Saver - lots better than the Energy 3.

I've just got an Ultraguage which I am hoping will work with the VW.
Are you going to leave it in there when driving with students ?
It would be a monumental distraction.
