Default SSR Type C Replacement Center Caps

Does anybody know of a vendor that can get me replacement center caps? Or if you have a set let me know that as well.

Thanks
Marc

Luke,

I already ordered the ones you have available however they are not the style I am looking for. I am looking for the original all machined versions, including the logo. The ones you have are machined but use a sticker for the logo.

If you can get the style I am looking for please let me know.

Marc

snodork, thats a good idea however the installer that put my last set of tires on dented my caps. So a retouch such as whet you did will not be possible.

the centercaps are aluminum so they can be taken down a bit. I put mine on a lathe and sanded them down and cleaned them up with acetone...

i did drop one after that and ding it pretty good...back tot he lathe and good as new

I was going to try and use a buffing wheel on a bench grinder to get them out but I think they are too deep. Anything more agressage then that on a bench grinder I don't think I could get a good enough/even enough result. A lathe would be perfect if I had access to one.
