BMW wheel center cap for BBS???

BMW wheel center cap for BBS CHR's, I just bought these BBS's and the BMW center cap doesnt fit, I was wondering if there was a company that made a BMW cap that would fit these, I dont like the BBS ones.

Another option to consider is overlays. Not sure the dimensions would work, but bimmian.com sells them.

BBS also sells different color caps for their wheels. Black, Red, Polished etc.. They have blue too but thats ultra rare to find.

Personally not a fan of oem caps on aftermarket wheels. Makes the wheels look like they are replicas or something.

Overlay decal is your best option if you really want it.

As you can see, BBS cap size is different from OEM BMW cap size (which is 68mm dia.)

I believe your CHR wheel cap size is 70mm for the face, and 64mm for the back

I've always liked OEM caps on aftermarket wheels. I think it tones down the bling factor a bit. I've often wondered if there was a business to be made creating those factory look centercaps, but it would probably be hard to create enough types to make sense.
