New Custom Center Caps (Requests)?

Hey all,

I had a really great response from the Dinan caps I had made (mostly for myself) - several people have mentioned having other caps made.

These would be made of single piece aluminum billet and are really well done. Just looking to see what diameters / sizes people are looking for and any particular logos?

Someone really wanted ones with an embossed BMW emblem. They'd come unfinished + polished. Sadly the price point is a little steep (~$70 a piece in small batches) and my time to cad up the design.

I need to have some made for the 19" Dinan/Champion wheels - but I almost need a cap to reverse engineer for dimensions.

Thanks!

Is this deja vu all over again?

Doesn't look like I can PM quite yet; can you send me one and I can reply?"

I do have a spare set of 19" wheels with caps. I can send you a cap but I will need it back. LMK.

Awesome; I'll keep you updated on the design. I'm guessing a min of a month turn around on this. Prob take me a few days to make the design and then the time to deal with the manufacturer. I could probably make some of these in the standard diameters for regular BMW wheels?

Got him covered; I had two sets left. I'm having more made but it'll be a few weeks before I get more in.
