Alternate center caps for RPF1?

does anyone know of any center caps that will fit on RPF1s? i have them in the SBC color way and was hoping to get some center caps, maybe some custom ones with the subaru logo on them? I've been looking around but was hoping for members to chime in and help me out. I've heard of some people going on eBay and getting some generic caps that fit and then putting the subaru stickers on them. i think id prefer not to do stickers but I'm open to suggestions!

If you want generic caps, I believe anything with inner diameter of 64mm will fit, and then you just put stickers on top of that.

I was eyeing these "custom" Enkei branded ones for my planned RPF1s: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Enkei-RPF1-C...LbJK0g&vxp=mtr

Yeah, for some reason Enkei designed an awesome wheel with a super shitty center cap design. I just spray painted mine black to match the color of my wheels and called it a day. Some people use 2" knock out plugs and paint them to match. That's definitely the most affordable option.

my issue is i have SBC so it'd be really hard to match that so black might be the only way to go

I really like the flat center cap design enkei has on their other wheels... I don't know why they went with such a cheap looking design for the RPF1's. and they're expensive too... $25 a piece. but I had to buy them because I didn't want to look cheap and buy wheels without the right center caps lol

I wonder if you can just buy those flat caps, sand it flat on the back, and then epoxy to some generic flat 64mm cap?

I agree, those look awesome They only fit the 19" RPF1s though. sigh.

"custom" caps

i went cheap and made home depot ones, 5-10 bux, could use any sticker to cover it. I prefer it cuz it doesn't stick out at all

I just followed this: http://www.mazdaspeedforums.org/foru...er-caps-87750/

And yes, I did air up my tire after this picture

Got my center caps from flat out graphics. They're pretty good and I think aesthetically appealing. https://flatoutgfx.com/products/enkei-rpf1-center-caps

awesome! thanks for the link! i emailed him to see if he could match with the SBC color way for the RPF1, does anyone have that color way? i was looking at the mirror or the chrome color he already has set on there but don't know if it would clash with the SBC if it isn't close enough in color. Maybe just go with black?
