Well, they fit my 2016 19" ST wheels. Perhaps you should post a picture of your wheels, so that people know which wheels you are talking about?

I've spent the last couple of hours trying to work out what 'ctr' is...  Maybe an aftermarket brand?  Maybe Civic Type R style?  Probably not this...

Just realised it's short for 'centre'...youngsters and their text speak!! :laugh:

You can see the difference in quality on the backing.  I don't think either are the wrong size, just poorly made.

If that is the case, I would use a hair dryer on the tabs of the loose one, and gently bend them outwards so that they grip the center, sorry, ctr, better!

You need to put some tape or something around the plastic lugs at the back to thicken them up. I had red ones on mine that rattled in the wind as they were so loose. So as a quick easy bodge, sorry I mean fix, I wrapped masking tape around them. They fit snug, never rattled and never fell out.

Would still just bend the tabs back, will have same effect...

The centre caps on my Oz wheels can be a bit loose fitting so I’ve got small sections of duct tape on the locating tabs and works just fine.

The centre caps in the original photo with the rounded tabs look like generic aftermarket copies rather than Ford oem parts?
