Default replica z06 Centercaps?

Yes I have searched all over but didnt see a consensus ... where is the best place to buy the Centercaps for my wheels? I have a set of replicas in chrome that is missing one centercap? I looked everywhere but I could not find any markings for a make/manufacturer of the rim?

fronts are 18 and rears are 19

Any help would be appreciated

These obviously have decals .. is this the norm or what? I called a local chevy store and you would have thought I was asking a physics question when i asked if they had chrome z06 wheels centercaps and sent him pics .. total confusion lol

Help guys!

Thanks in advance

are they all the same size or do I have to worry about different sizes? The guy at the chevy store acted like there were about 10 different size caps depending on something i was not aware of ... thank you for the link!

The GM center caps are not the same as what you have. The ones that you have are from Factory Reproductions. Bob's House of Wheels is a dealer and a Forum vendor, he has them. You may also contact Factory Reproductions customer service department and they may send you one at no charge like they did for me once. You should use some silicone sealent to "glue" them on the the wheel from the back side so you won't loose them, that is what I do.

As others have said, be careful with purchasing OEM center caps. They most likely wont fit. Ive had the same issue but in my case, I sold all 4 of my reproduction center caps on ebay...thinking I would just go buy OEM ones....yea...Bob at House of Wheels bailed me out there...lesson learned. Good luck.
