Default Wheel ID help needed '06

Hi All! I just picked up an 06 cruiser and I'd like to replace the missing wheel center cap. Do you know what kind of wheels these are?

They are called "Empire" wheels. They mainly came on some 2004 and newer PT Cruiser GT's. These are fairly common on PT GT's that did not come with the 1st Gen GT wheels like on the left and center cars in my footer below.

Thank you guys. Where would I be able to purchase the chrome center caps? Are they still available from Chrysler? Thanks again.

I believe this is it. I found the empire wheel part number 05272920AA and found the associated center cap in chrome. It is still available if this is it.

https://www.moparpartsoverstock.com/...5272812AA.html


Here's the logic I used:

I found the empire chrome wheel with part number on eBay.
I then Googled that part number and all were photos of the chrome empire wheel. This confirms the number.
Next, I went to www.moparpartsoverstock.com and entered that wheel part number.
When that page came up, I clicked on the diagram.
The diagram shows a generic wheel as item #4 and the center cap as #5.
I scrolled down amoung the choices of #5 until I found CCAP. Wheel Center. [WGE,WGK]. . "Wheels - 17* Aluminum, Chrome"="Wheels - 17* Aluminum, C
When I clicked on that, I came up with the link above.
Part numbers listed are 05272812AA and 05278947AA.

I make no guarantees since I cannot relate a real photo with those two part numbers. But my guess is this is it.

Take that part # Handy provided and check Amazon and fleabay. I bought a couple off fleabay for mine last year and they were pretty cheap.

^^^^^^ That's the same part # I found searching.

Your best/cheapest route would be check out your local yards or if you have one of the missing caps is look on the back side of it, for example:



Then plug the numbers into an ebay search.

Handy, thanks for your time and help. I used the part number and ordered a few. I'll keep my fingers crossed they are correct.

Thank you all for your kind help!
