Default Need help from the wheel guru's

Right I know there are a few wheel guru's on here that have a lot of knowledge of this subject and may be able to help me or point me in the right direction.

Basically I purchased my wheels from a Japanese car specialists here in the UK, the wheels came off am evo from Japan that they bought over and broke. Wheels are 18x7.5 et42 enkei nt03. Now these wheels didn't come with center caps so whilst searching and searching I only ever came across the nt03+m which have the cut outs in the center and then the one very similar to mine with the flat face but with a raise middle for the center cap. Mine however have a completely flat face without the raised centre cap.

After some research I came across the nt03+rr which was used on the r34 in the n1 24hr race and I'm lead to believe these are a limited edition design based on that wheel?

Anyone know for sure what they are?
Can I get centre caps for them?
Is there many around?

Thanks

I can't help you with exactly what model they are or if they are some special model, but I will respond to the center cap question.

It is not uncommon to find performance/motorsport oriented wheels that do not bother building in the necessary elements to mount centercaps. Centercaps are just a decoration and means of advertising the company's name. On race cars, they are unnecessary, so some companies don't even bother with them.

Is there a ridge inside the center bore where a centercap would clip into?

It looks like there is a ridge from the silver wheel pic.

I would check with a wheel shop and see if they have a generic one that would fit. I found some for mine that a local Tire Factory shop could get me.

Thanks for the replies chaps, I don't think there is a ridge, I've been in contact with a guy who custom makes center caps as I would mind a set as I'm sending thee off too be refurbished properly whilst I'm away.
