Default Place to get center cap for P1 Prodrive rims?

Mine is all scratched up and faded. Need a new set of center cap for my P1 prodrive rims. Anyone knows of a vendor that carries "Prodrive" center cap?

Thanks!

I've been researching a possible wheel upgrade and stumbled on this page. If you haven't found the caps yet, it should be what you want.

By the way, how do you like your P1's. I like the looks a lot and thought that was going to be my wheel of choice, but I have concerns about the weight after researching. SSR seems like the lightweight king when price is factored, but not as good looking IMO.

Just be aware the SSRs are not well suited for poor roads and big potholes. They can be and have been bent on the streets by members. I've got 18" P1s and I've hit potholes and railroad tracks that rattled my brain, but did nothing to the rims.

Your right skyline, lighter is not always better. My use would be street primarily with an autocross or maybe a rare track day every blue moon. But I really just want a better looking rim than stock to slap some summer rubber on. The lightweight stockers make it a challange to keep weight at or below oem. Not to mention light gets real pricey real quickly.

Notice any acceleration difference with those 18's? Think I'm in the market for 17's.

I cannot tell any difference in acceleration at all with 18" P1s. I very much doubt anyone's butt dyno can notice a difference. In timed events, I suppose a tenth of a second is possible, but I'm a software developer by trade, not a racer. Also, be aware that tire weight can vary widely as well.

On the other hand, the handling, grip, and responsiveness is so much better than stock. Of course, this is the result of the improved tire, shorter sidewall, and wider tread.

Thanks for the reply Skyline,

When the time comes, wheel weight won't be the determinig factor. It's definitely something to bring into the equation, but I'm not going to put an ugly, more expensive wheel on the car just so I can say it's two pounds lighter.
