Grant wheels makes a plain cap and you should be able to get the MC logo from a dealer. Let me know if you have any problems getting them. I may have what you need in my garage.

Are you looking for the cap, logo piece or both? Do you have a picture of your wheel?

No dudes I need the entire cap. I didn't get one with the wheel when I bought it. Plus I don't think this is an 87' wheel. I have tilt steering.

You could think about getting a new steering wheel. Grant wheels are on e-bay cheap.Then you could fit the the size center button thats available.Or you could have someone make a batch for your size center button and sell the extra's to cover some of the costs.OK just saw your pic.and thats not a stock 87 wheel.and it's not a grant wheel.check your i.d. of the wheel hole,if it's 2-1/8 a grant center button will fit,they are about 2 bucks.The sticker that fits that button is 1-1/2 in diameter and I gave you the # of the dealer that has that sticker.The grant part#is 14047-01.

Brian, I've got a backup for mine that I haven't put on yet. Unfortunately, it won't match what came stock on yours as it reads "25th."

Which dealers have you tried? Do you have a part number. Seems like one of those things that MC would have lying around (like the window decal I ordered last year).

I tried the dealer that Brn85ss suggested, my local dealer and I also asked JimK. I'm just tierd of looking at that nut. I looked at Grant wheels on eBay and I can't see paying $15-20 for something that is a few dollars.

Call MC in Vonore and get a part number. Some dealers are beholden to the parts CD-Rom and can search a lot easier with that number. Hector at Bennetts is quite helpful with phone in requests.

That would be great if you could. My hole measures 2.25 inches across. Let me know what I owe you. Thanks!!

I don't think the cap will pop in if your wheel hole is 2/14 but you could put alittle silicon to hold it in place.If that's OK with you I will pick it up next week.

I think the wheel is a "Dino" if that helps.

That wheel looks identical to my '95 ps190 if that helps at all.

FWIW - My center cap is constantly falling off. I'm waiting for the 2 year old to see if it floats!
