Default *Centerline wheel center caps

We drove over to Biloxi MS for Cruisin' The Coast last week (I-10 at Beaumont is a disaster) and while cleaning the car, I noticed one of the center caps was missing from the left rear wheel. These Centerline wheels (Competition Series - Vintage style) are at least 8 - 9 years old and trying to find a replacement has turned into a major search! Since Centerline is no longer in business I thought I would just buy four new caps from another wheel mfg. - WRONG! I have searched all the sites I can think of with no luck.
These caps are snap in bullet style and measure 3.17" O.D. at the snap ring area and 3.25" at the stop ring, and are 3.25" tall - does anyone have an idea where to find something that will fit? I need help. Thanks, AWC

Thanks Bruce but those are "push in" caps that mount from the back, mine are snap in and mount from the front.
Yes, I've tried Ebay but it is difficult to find dimensions and I don't want to buy caps that won't fit as some Sellers say "no returns". Also difficult to get responses to questions so I'll keep looking.
Thanks for the responses.

Those are the correct diameter and will work on your wheels. I have used this style to replace the broken plastic type like you have. The 3.17 diameter is what you need and it is not a common size.

Bruce, just an update - I received both orders yesterday and the caps you referenced are the push in type requiring the wheel to be off the car - the other set are snap in similar to what I had so I was able to return the push in set.

The snap in are listed on eBay as: 4 New Aftermarket Caps 5 lug Centerline Wheels M___r F__d Chevy cars - price was $69.99 plus shipping but they are direct replacement, even slightly smaller I.D. as original so I will still have to build up for a tight fit. Thanks for the lead. AWC
