So the center cap fell off of one of my boss's wheels, and it has been discontinued. I cannot find one anywhere, there are a million different retailers online that claim to have it, but none of them actually do. The wheel is an "Akuza" model 534 aka "unknown", size 22". I have put in messages to eBay retailers that specialize in hard to find center caps, they won't return my messages. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

Can you maybe simply replace all four caps with something that looks right?

Have you tried Discount Tire to see if they can get you one? you may pay a bit for it... but they may be able to get one for you.

They didn't tighten up my center cap correctly on an old set of rims I had that were discontinued, and they had a new center cap for me in 3 days after it fell off somewhere while I was driving.

TSS, if I could find something that would actually fit, I'd be happy to switch them all. JBru, yes I tried them, and Les Schwab. Don, yes that. Problem is, call that phone number and ask for it, you'll find they don't have it. What's worse is, there are a thousand different sites out there that list them, but they all have that phone number.

The guy at Les Schwab told me that Akuza changes their wheel line about once a year, so since these wheels are from like 2007, it's pretty much impossible to find them. They all tell me to check eBay and craigslist, but there's nothing there either.

Well I don't see how they do any business if they don't answer their goddamn phones, I'll try them again Tuesday and see if they want any business then.

I'll have to try that link from my computer, on my iPhone it just takes me to the categories page.
