"center cap eagle 054 5-4.75"
Paid $12 each in Oct, 2003
They fit fine. Used MSA "Z stick-on emblems" for center flat.
Ordered thru local custom wheel shop.

I checked with American Eagle today Ron and they no longer make those caps. I am going to try checking with custom wheel shops to see if they might still have some in stock. The Eagle caps are just about the same shape as the original Appliance caps. Thanks all.
The search continues...

Understood, Randy. I agree that the Enkei caps are not as attractive.
Thanks for the link Arne. If all else fails I would consider the Enkei caps, but I am not thrilled with the squareness of the cap.
Here's a thought - I can't remember if the Appliance wheels have a taper machined at the back side of the center hole or not. But if they do, the caps in the link below may work. They are 2.95" so that they could be pushed through from behind. But you'd need to be certain that the lip at the base of the cap doesn't interfere with the proper mounting of the wheel to the face of the hub/drum.
