Highly unlikely that you could get them separately. I too lost one alloy lip and could never source one.

Thanks.
Contact the Distributor may be they can help you with this, The normal caps are available in the market but the samurai series have a very different type of caps.

I guess you can try for the Veloche or something similar alloys. They are rip-offs of the Lenso Samurai series. (Guess the thief might be using these Veloche brand )

Not very sure of the cups, but the Samurai stickers on the cups are easily available

Yikees !! that was supposed to be Center Hub or Alloy hub or sometimes even called Center Cap. My bad, was reading up too much about alloys and then posted.

Anyways since you asked what is an alloy lip here you go , it's like a band between the outer surface and the points at which the spokes meet the rim.

Buddy, get a sticker made. Go to any number plate shop with Lenso Samurai sticker (in pen drive or a print out) and they'll make a same one. I can't say if it'll look like the original but the difference will be like 19-20.

Hey, I remember Satya (blueraven) was telling me that you can get the caps. But the original Lenso caps are costly. Something like 600 Rs I guess.

Yea,satya said he could source them for my enkei rims,so he should be able to help you. They are pretty expensive though.
