What kind of center caps are those on the steelies? I've got a set of steels in need of those caps!

They are the E30 center caps. I also got these from Blunt. They're quite inexpensive.

While we are on the subject (sorry to thread-jack),

What lug nuts should I use for my aluminum enkeis? Different from the ones I use with my steelies I presume? If anybody has some please email me (or a link to a source).

CD do you have the part numbers for the wheel bolts shown - both for steel and alloy?

RealOEM is not showing the numbers for the wheel bolts.

Thanks Beaner7102

BMW didn't have chrome wheel lugs showing available.. Well, at least RealOEM didn't. Black only. So I bought some from tire discounters. they showed them 'correct'.. at least for the steel wheel. Haven't tried mounting one yet, to see if they hold the center cap. But I pressed them in place with my fingertips, as it sits in the picture, and it was secure.

P.S. These are going on the e30.

Is that a deep blue metallic finish? Looks really cool. Post some pics with the wheels on the car.
