Hey yall I have recently bought some MB 5x rims
and I was wondering if anyone has any idea on how to make a better looking center caps

I'll let you know if I can figure anything out, the caps that MB send out look like they belong on a big rig.

^^wanna buy 3? lol when i took them to get powder coated, i couldn't get the last one out so i just told the guy screw it, if it breaks i don't care, so now i'm stuck finding somthing that will fit.
i measued the hole and it is 2 3/8" and did some searching on ebay for some center caps that match that but havn't brought up much, i plan on finding some oem caps that'll fit and if they arn't ford, i'll bondo it up and smooth them out then just paint them black. that's the only thing i've thought of. i have a set of oldsmobile center caps somewhere in my garage but can't find them yet...

i have R1 victory wheels (i think thats the model of R1's they are) and those center caps are ugly and stick out so far so what i did was just paint my factory ford caps and JB Weld them on, there a nice small center cap and if you dont use too thick of paint coats you can still the ford logo on them :)
