BMW Center Cap (non-OEM)

Have some aftermarket rims, and looking to replace the center caps as they are showing some wear.

The OEM center caps do not fit, as the diameter of the inside "teeth" is greater on the OEM.

Rough measurements are;

- Outside Diameter: 68mm
- "teeth" Diameter: 63mm

Edit - "C208" is embossed on the inside.

Anyone know a source?

Ebay has several listings for centercaps that are aftermarket sizes. I have purchased BMW cap's, fake BBS cap's etc. for aftermarket wheels that were not 68mm center cap hole. Most have been from Taiwan. It took a while but they showed-up and were not to bad quality considering the price.
