Default Center caps for (gulp) Coronas

Alright TB. I know how much y’all love Coronas but...

I just got a cheap set that I’m looking to use for winter wheels. Of course they don’t come with center caps.

I’m not looking to pay a premium for the “correct” caps. I just want something to keep out the salt and other NYC winter detritus.

The searches I’ve done haven’t yielded anything conclusive. What are cheap caps that will fit these wheels?

Don't forget to use acorn style lug nuts so the wheel studs and nuts don't get all rusty and corroded to the wheel.

^That probably is the best way to go with a set of beater Covid-19 rims... Provides better protection than steel lugs that are uncovered, and common enough to be easily replaced when a NY pothole sends one flying into oblivion.

I glue these on with some RTV because I've had these type of caps rattle while driving.

I think the dealers used to use pieces of butyl tape on the back side to keep them in place. Contact pints was just on the raised "vane".
