wheel center caps

I'm trying to replace center caps on 15" Airstream aluminum wheels. The center bore is 3.75". The recess on back side of bore is 4". 3.75" caps seem to be difficult to find. Any ideas anyone?

Are they for aluminum or steel wheels?

Those mag wheel "bullets" are no longer available from Airstream.

About a year ago I noticed a couple of those at Oasis RV in Tucson. It might be worth a call.

Bimpy,

You might place your request in the classfied section at the top of the page. Your audience would be larger than in this repair forum.

Hi bimpy

I just sold the three wheels, but thanks for the suggestion, i did find the buy in the classifieds link above.

did you find your aluminum center caps. i bought a new one last summer from a parts dealer in alabama. don't remember his name or phone number, but would search through my receipts for it, if you still are looking for the cap.
