Default new guy, hubcap question

hi, All

Just got a really nice 2001 S-10 Blazer. It's really clean and nice and RED. Really RED.

Has the factory rally/aluminum wheels, but the center caps are gone. They're just plain aluminum looking flat discs, some I've seen have a Chevy bowtie logo.

Where can I get a set of these without getting bent over? One place I checked wanted $40 apiece, ouch. Saw some on ebay, but vendor couldn't/wouldn't answer where they fit my wheels or not. They were listed for a full size Blazer.

Any help? My wheels are the type with 5 curved spokes.

Welcome to the forum...
Try looking around your area for parts stores. I'm sure if you went to the local chevy dealer they'd charge you an arm and a leg. I'd recommend junk yards too, they're always good for finding random parts like that!

Top right? They are LT wheels, for your future searches.

Not the best condition - eBay set 1

Good condition but only one, may have more if you ask the seller? - eBay 2

Scratched to poop but might clean up - eBay scratched

I don't think many junkyards will sell just the cap without you buying the rim.

You could always rock it dehoogh style...

69.95 a piece is ridiculous. Go with ebay!

thx for the replies guys. I'm still looking around, there's got to be something out there. I did look at the ebay stuff, pretty beat up. I had no idea these would be hard to find.

:P I had mine without the center caps for quite some time.

They're back on now but they are in bad condition. I had found a set of all 4 brand new and no reserve on ebay. Unfortunately, the email updates weren't working correctly and I forgot about the auction once it got close to the end. The auction ended without any bids. (I didn't want to bid too early) I could have had them basically for the cost of shipping. I emailed the seller twice but never heard a response back.

If you do ever find any, let me know. I need some as well.
