Default Where can I find a center cap?

One of my hupcap's center caps fell off - or maybe was stolen, though I'm not sure who'd do that - a while back, and I've had a hard time finding just the right replacement. Is there a tried and true place to find things like this online? I've been told to check eBay, but nothing on there right now matches my car.

My PT is a Touring Edition, and the wheels are chrome, if that makes a difference. I'd go out and take a picture, but my car is in the shop this week!

Here's one right now on Fleabay. The seller has about 10 of them. A little expensive.

Thanks for looking! I did see those, but the ones that came on my car have the Chrysler emblem on them. It looks pretty ghetto with one center cap missing, but I feel like it might look worse with a mismatched one! Ha.

Maybe you should past a pick, as the cap you were directed to is the one that comes on the chrome wheels, unless they say pt cruiser and are of particular colors for dream cruisers.

You could also buy the plain one and then cover them all with center cap decals like I did here.



You can get the center cap decals at Streamline Design.....

The best photo I can seem to find on this computer is one I took several years ago when I met a friend for the first time in person and we discovered that we both drove PT Cruisers. We were so amused, we had to take photos with our cars. Here's the one that shows best which center caps came on my car...I'm doing that as a link, because it would only show up as an unnecessarily massive photo when I uploaded it straight here. Mine is the one on the left.

Yes, I know it's hard to see exactly what those center caps look like, but as far as I can tell, it's this one from Chrysler, though I distinctly recall the middle part being a goldish/bronze-ish color, and not just all silver.

I should have the Admiral back tomorrow to know for sure!

I also realize that in finding that link, I've probably found a place to buy a center cap...but paying $25 for a tiny thing like that, after spending well over $1,000 for the new head gasket and all the fun stuff that comes along with it (not to mention the $600+ it cost me when it overheated and stranded me)...well, it just doesn't thrill me. I was hoping someone with more experience in updating and making your PTs beautiful would know a less expensive place to buy them!

Is the centercap separate from the lugnut cover? Because from what I can see you need something like this.

If you want the correct one, go to a Chrysler dealer.

Only that little middle section is missing. I definitely like those prices better, though!
