OZ 15" centre caps

Postby scooter49 » Mon 15.04.2019, 10:26

I have a 1990 M100 SE Turbo.
I need centre caps. I am getting the wheels powder coated in gold. I really would like black centre caps with black and silver logo.

I do not have a clue what size I require or where to get a decent set. Can someone please point me in the right direction.


Many thanks.

If you have stock OZ wheels, you can get:

Standard silver faced caps A082G6046F
A082G6046F.jpg

or

Lotus Emblem faced caps A082G6071F

You can order them from your LOCAL Lotus Dealer or from SJ Sportscars.

I am not aware of any black centre caps with black and silver logo caps being available. You could get some custom decals printed that will fit in the OZ caps.

Flat Silver disc with Black logo in centre is closest I can think of.. they are in the centre of Speedline wheels on my Eclat Riviera, Part No. A079G4006F

They are slightly bigger than the slightly domed OE disc so can be carefully cut down using the original disc as a template... whether it's worth the effort remains to be seen. I think the OE coloured badge centre caps would look OK.

As others have said, black and silver centre caps would need to be custom made. I have a source for such custom work, but you’d need to tell them the exact diameter and colours you want (mine are S2 wheels, so the dimensions are different).

This design is the one I have considered but have not looked at sizes.

I have only just got home from a 520 mile drive back from Holland, so am a tad jaded.....

.... I have those design on my centre caps :D

I sourced a set of 4 (except I bought 6!) from a guy on Facebook who makes them up to whatever size you want (I'll try and remember to find the details tomorrow when I've slept a bit). They are self adhesive gel material, and have lasted 5 years so far without signs of fading. They simply stick on where you prise the current centre bit out of the cap (after cleaning the black plastic bit!!).

Not the best of pictures, but it gives an idea of the look.

Dapinky:
That is exactly what I am looking for. I don't do facebook but if you manage to get the size you used and an email address for the maker, I would be very grateful.


Thanks all

Scooter49,

The best I can do at the moment is to point you to this thread where all the discussions and pictures and details are held.....

If you find that you want to go with Darren, then there is an email link on his forum profile, but I don't know how recent/active it is. He only really joined us at the time we were looking to get these made, and isn't an 'active' member here - but he is very helpful (a sign of a good business!) and will basically make whatever you want in whatever colours you want them.

If you can't get hold of him via his email link, and don't do Facebook, then re-post here and I'll see if I can assist further.

I assume that similar items can be made by a fair few people, and the exact size you require is known, but I can certainly recommend Darrens' work. (and he has the artwork setup already).

Many, many thanks.
Got an email address for him and mail sent along with a pic of your wheel :D

He does have a website but it looks bare.

I will update once I hear/do not hear back

No reply from Darren.
So I did a bit of digging and found these:

I ordered 45mm. I believe yours were 46mm so not a lot in it. I will let the forum know what they are like once received.

Darren is around at the moment, but Locking Vinyl has recently acquired another business, so he’s been really busy trying to tie up the legal loose ends of that. I’m sure he will respond as soon as he can, and - as dapinky says, his work is excellent.
