I've lost two of my caps. I think the dealer I bought them from is trying a fast one. He says each of those plastic caps cost 400 Bucks! Wondering if any one knows of any other doors to knock on.

Hunt around JC Road or any spare dealers am sure you can find those black plastic caps.

Else steal them . Mine was stolen while it was running on the stock rims.

He might have quoted the prices for wheel cups?

I thought he said, "Alloy Wheel Cap", so maybe it's this.



The stock 14" Alloy wheel is from Aura.
The so-called centre-cap is merely a rear-printed transparent PVC sticker with Suzuki's oriental-font "S" monogram. A vandal can easily peel it off.

if you are looking out for the black ones for stock wheels it cost 200 for a set of four. if it is for alloys, by all chance you cannot buy them off the shelf. but do try at various alloy wheel shop if they can help you out.

Yes Ram, you're right!!!

I was talking about alloy wheel caps and not hub caps for the normal wheels. For stock 13" alloys that came with 2003 Balenos, its not just a sticker with the Suzuki logo but is a removable disc that hides the 4 bolts. It also has a Suzuki logo in the center. As I am not able to post pictures yet, please see my profile avatar to understand what I am looking for as a spare.

Thanks,
Anil Dev

Exclamation

Ram is right (as far as my query is concerned). I forgot to include that these caps are for an Indica 14" alloys. (I wasn't sure if I should start another thread - all the mods are pouncing on newbies for not searching first! ) Are these caps a one size fits all? Any specific place you have in mind on JC road? I have almost made up my mind to get them turned on a lathe!
The engine offer sounds tempting...but wont it get a little screwed up with diesel

Default Alloy Center Cap

I have Lenso LS-GT 15" Alloys on my Hyundai Getz and the center caps have gone missing on all the four wheels.

Is it possible to buy the caps alone?

Yes, it should be. Ask Blueraven316, he should be able to help you out.

I finally made a couple of caps myself! At home And I got professionals to get stickers done. Will post pictures soon I used an old 'bru' cap - (yes coffee jar!) and cut out, stuck and ground off as necessary.cheers:

I believe that caps are not available so as to prevent fakes in the market.
