Default Need center cap idea for Dodge rims.

I put 18" Dodge alloy wheels on my Vue, and I'd like to put something neutral in place of the Dodge logo center caps.
These are apparently 63mm, and from what I can see no matching Saturn cap matches this.
Anyone ever done this before?

I've been digging through everything I can find, and this is the best I could find.
I think it won't look too bad, better than the dodge center cap anyway.
11 bucks at walmart.

Suppose you could cut out the center of the Dodge caps and press these in.

...Also check online , someone was making billet center caps for the dodge rims, was looking into that when i had my srt8 rims for my RL. You have to check and verify measurements, i used black plastic caps from ebay, myself. Hope that helps, DC.

Did those center caps work. If so you have a link to them?

No they didn't. It turns out that there are 2 different depths of cap, i got ones that were too shallow by almost half. So the clips couldnt reach the machined ridges in the holes.
Now that I understand that, I have another set on its way. I'll post how it goes with those.

hey let us know. The other option would be file down the raised name so it is smooth. Then get like carbon vinyl on ebay to match. I know it vinyl but would work. I did this to a badge on a hatchback car once. look great. Lasted a long time.
