Question WTB: Universal/Generic Center Caps?

Any idea where I can get a set of plain center caps? Looking for caps for a 60mm bore.

If you search on ebay for "60mm centercap" they have a bunch of cheap blank centercaps in various colors from blank plastics to chrome without logos. Usually $5-10

Yeah, I saw those too. The top one wouldn't fit (55mm bore size), and the bottom ones ship from China directly (meh) and don't have any sort of retention clip. Thanks for looking, though. Any other sources that you can think of off the top of your head?

I saw a how-to that used just basic plastic plugs from a hardware store. I checked mcmaster and they don't measure theirs in mm, though.

The other option is to just buy an OEM one and remove the label. They're usually just a dome sticker placed on a blank plastic center cap, although I'm not sure which center caps you're referring to.

Just checked McMaster and they don't have anything that matches what I need (fits 60mm / 2.375" ID). Most of the OEM search results I find just mention the type of car/wheel they fit on, without actually providing measurements. I might hit up a dealership and see if they can bring out a few for me to look at. Thanks dude.
