Hey I am planning on buying a set of 14x7 RPF1s soon and I know that they don't make center caps for 14s. I searched and I was just wondering what you guys use for center caps. I was thinking I would just use blank grey/silver center caps, but I have no idea where to buy those. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

EDIT : I realize I could buy push out caps from Home Depot, but I want to explore other alternatives.

How about finding an OE mazda center cap that fits . I have some cheap aftermarket wheels on for the winter and i found a set of old metal mazda center caps fit perfect . Take some measurements go to your dealer and ask to see some of the larger center caps they have in stock measure them . If there not a perfect fit (little on the loose side use some electrical tape till they snug up .

Great idea, thanks. I think I'll do that.

Also look at Honda center caps. An ideal one would have the H sticker that could be peeled off or vinyl'd over rather than having to fill an inset H with bondo or something.

I found one that would work great on the front hubs, but the little center cap was totally flat. The rear hubs wouldn't let it work due to the big bolt. I *think* it was a Civic cap, but I don't remember anymore. Sorry to not be more helpful here.

Nielex sold some wheel center cores that were specific to the 14x7 RPF 1, 14x6.5 Volk TE37, & CE27. You basically took off the dust cap from the front hub & replaced it with the Nielex cap & then the rear hubs would be covered with some specifically made caps as well. They gave the wheel centers a very clean look.

^ That's what they look like.

Problem is that if you can actually get them here in the USA, you'd be looking at about $400 to $600 for the set.

But maybe if there was a group buy, they could be had cheaper. Hmmmmm.... (^_^ ) ?
