Good Source for Baby Moons....

Anyone know a good source for the "Clip Style" Baby Moons? I've found some in stainless steel, but at $40 a piece I'm looking at $160 if I go this route.

Thanks,

Kevin

I'm assuming your wheels are 15 inch. I ordered a pair off of ebay but they are too small in diameter by at least 1/2 an inch and they are too shallow. They look spiffy but they're not going to work.

I'm about resigned to have the originals, which I have, rehabilitated and rechromed. Can't cost more than the new AC unit, can it?

Yes I've seen some on ebay that the seller claims are too small but "Can Be Made To Fit". I'd rather avoid trying to make something work even if I end up spending the $160.

My opening is 7 3/4" on a 15" rim.

Thanks,

Kevin
