Centre caps for Starspoke alloys (17") by Dave (Page 1 of 2)

Just bought these wheels from Jake

In the ad he says that the centre caps are not refurbed, so just wondering if anyone can advise on the size I need and perhaps have any idea where I can get some?

Cheers folks!

Believe still available from Rimmers and other XPart outlets.
Not at a computer with EPC on at the moment so can't give you the part number till later.

Dave, I've got the part number somewhere but working off a phone at the moment in the South West l. You can get them for about £15 a set on the bay! :)

Had another look on Rimmer's and seems they might have them - but not sure which ones to go for as don't show sizes!

So any part numbers would be appreciated! (but no rush though!)

Part numbers should be on the back of the centers something like this.

I have a set of Mk1 centre caps but no idea if they would fit? What size are the holes Dave?

Resisting the temptation for a Benny Hill style repost, I think that they are 57mm, but I stand to be corrected by more knowledgeable folks!

Hi These are 56mm but you really need to check those codes in the back of centres,

The 17" Mirage wheels i brought of Robbie take 54mm denoted by the

Here's a photo of the inside of one of mine!

Looking on Rimmers, DTC100680 seem to be Mini (?), DTC000090 are MG, and DTC000150 are Rover

Oddly the latter appear with two logos (the older, more detailed one and the later more "modern" one) with prices of £8.52 and £14.97 respectively!

Hoping this is per set, not per cap! Having said that, they are not in stock so academic :-(

Also, can't see a size specified, and, on measuring mine, not really sure if they are 56mm or 57mm?

Can anyone advise?

:-)

As mad as it may seem, centres are priced individually, a set of some centres are well over £100!

I'll have to get one off again and see if I can find a more accurate measure! Problem is getting them off - a right pain to keep taking wheels off, but risking damage to wheels/caps when prising off, even with the tiniest screwdriver!

They have the MK2 ship on them but may not be a problem.
