I recently acquired a 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL which has 14 in wire spoke wheels. I was told by someone who has knowledge of wheels that mine are 14 in."Tru-Spoke" wire wheels. I cannot find any name or marking on the wheel to confirm this.
Two of the center caps are missing and the remaining two are damaged. I am attaching a photo, showing one of the wheels with a center cap The existing center caps are plastic. The information on the inside of the cap reads:
MADE IN KOREA
I found a old, rusted, unmarked, metal center cap that fits my wheel perfectly. The diameter of the metal part that forms the bind area contact with the wheel is exactly 3 inches. I don't know what that center cap came off of.
I contacted the successor corporation of Cragar (who made the Tru-Spoke) and they were no help whatsoever. I have contacted many other Internet companies that sell center caps but, so far, have received no help.
I shall appreciate any help anyone can give me in finding 4 center caps that will fit.
Also, if someone believes that the wheels are from a different manufacturer, that, too, would be helpful.
