    Default Alloy Wheel Center Caps - '78 280Z

    Does anyone know where to find this type of center cap for the factory alloy wheels on a '78 280Z? They are slightly square, unlike those on later wheels. The dealer no longer offers them, nor does Black Dragon or The Z Store.

    Thanks!

    John, if I were you I'd grab those three and take my chances at finding another one. When I bought four for my car in 2005, I was told that the ones I bought were among the last 20 or so available from Nissan. And they were about $28 ea. then.

    Default Looking for Center Caps.

    Does anyone else have any of the center caps for the Datsun Alloys? Didn't know if someone might have run across some somewhere, or sold a car and kept the caps.

    Thanks,

    David
