Searching: Wheel center caps

Hey all, I'm missing one wheel center cap and so far my efforts to find a replacement have been rather fruitless (more of a "Close, but no cigar" really)

Here's what I'm looking for:







The dimensions in that last one are hard to read: It's a 56mm cap (diameter) with a 52mm badge on it, the clips are 52mm in diameter.

Would be willing to pay, trade parts, or commit certain crimes against humanity for one or two of these badboys.

Thanks!

I will not buy this record, it is scratched.

Weird. I think I found one of these in the bottom of a box the other day. I'm not going to drive 30 miles just to check, but I'll keep it in mind for the next time I am there.

My hangup on that one was it says "... and 1986 GTV/6 and Milano models with "Wine Glass" style wheels". I have a wine glass wheel downstairs and the hole dimensions weren't the same, but that's not to say there wasn't something about the '86 that's different right?

A few weeks ago I ordered what I thought was a cap from Centerline, and only got a decal (re-reading the description, I should have known). After that incident I asked for clarification on another part, and was basically sent the posted description in e-mail form...

But, darn if it doesn't look the part doesn't it? Maybe I'll call them and see if I can get dimensions tomorrow.

Thanks guys

Alex, if you find yours and don't need it. I'd rather pad your bank account than centerline's. I'm not in much of a rush, so whenever you're back out there.

I will not buy this record, it is scratched.

Bill,

Might be a good idea to show a pic of the wheel these go to, as well. Then you're coming at it from two directions.

The wheel in your picture is not a wineglass wheel.

I think that's a Stilauto brand wheel which was sold at one point by Alfa Ricambi. It may or may not use standard size Alfa center caps.

Thanks! AR Ricambi's website doesn't have much to offer, but I'll try the number posted today.

Looks like I'm not the first to have this problem: http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/alfa...ls-5-65mm.html

Haha well that's good to know. I have 5 metric GTV6 wheels with the same caps of which two are missing, I bought some online and they didn't fit! So where do you get metric GTV6 plastic wheel caps? I also have metric GTV6 wheels with the metal disk and circlip (like this https://www.centerlinealfa.com/store/673) - once again I bought some online and they didn't fit.

I may have an extra or two for the TRX metric rims. If you would like me to check into that, you can e-mail me directly at--

Bill,

I dug out the cap but it's not the same. Apologies for getting your hopes up!

Alex.

Hey, no worries man. Stefmeisterb came through with a pair that I can make one good one from. Also there seems to be a euro shop locally that can make decals, so I was planning on hitting them up too.

Thanks for looking!
