Default AME ModelArt Ultimate Center Caps

Good afternoon fellow Lexus Owners! I recently purchased a set of 20" chrome AME ModelArt Ultimate rims for my 2003 Lexus LS430. I noticed 2 center caps were missing but didn't make a big deal of it, thinking I could easily find them online... HUGE MISTAKE! These AME wheels have been discontinued. My question is: does anyone know of a place that has discontinued rims/center caps OR a place that can remanufacture them?

Thanks!

Have you tried reaching out to AME directly? Last I talked to them, they've started re-manufacturing some new wheels, so I'd inquire to see if they have any NOS center caps for the wheels you have.

Yes, I spoke to the AME North America Distributor out of California and also Center Caps Direct. Neither of them could help me stating that the AME ModelArt Ultimate wheel had been discontinued a long time ago... Oh well... I guess that's why the guy I bought them from sold them for so cheap! LOL! You win some, you lose some...

Thanks for all your help! You guys are GREAT! I have learned a lot about my car just reading through these posts!! Kudos to everyone!
