Hi everyone,

I have a Mini City with some limited edition Ritz wheels minus the centre caps, grrr, and I have been trying since 2003 to get some but unsuccessfully, booooo. I have tried Advantage centre caps = no. I have tried some other limited edition centre caps = no. Apparently ONLY the Ritz ones will fit but I have never seen any for sale. I have though seen some on a surviving Ritz actually in Bournemouth but have never been able to speak to the guy driving...to see if he wants to sell them to me for hahahahah.

Anyway, is anyone else in the same situation?

Cheers,

Joe.

that photo is from 2003 by the way ;)

As you say, these are getting like rocking horse poo as the tabs that hold them on tend to go brittle and break off.
I got a set from Bingley a couple of years ago... there's a trader that sells used parts but cleans and bags them... he's the only guy I've ever found any from. I'm going to Bingley at the end of the month and the guy is normally there, so if you want to PM me a contact number, if I see any I could call you with the price and pick em up and post em down...

Maybe trying some of the places like MiniMail that always seem to get obscure parts is a thought... Failing that, autojumbles are your best bet.

And sorry, mine went when I sold the wheels...

Hi Joe,

Here at StickerCentral we can help you with Mini 'RITZ' resin domed self-adhesive centres, but not the actual push in cap part. If you were able to get another cap to fit the wheel then stick on the domed version that maybe the next best alternative.

This wheel centre is not in our catalogue yet, so if you needed a set you would be best emailing either via the on-line shop or 'PM' here.

Either way good luck with Mini.

Regards
StickerCentral

Hi,

I've added some info on Ritz hubcaps I finally managed to find (at last :rolleyes: ).
Perhaps some Ritz owners would want to try and make these for themselves?

Somerford Minis have them listed on their shop pdf's: -

http://www.somerford...Road-Wheels.pdf

It's item '53' (Part No: - AJM1145), but whether they actually have them in stock is another thing?

Going by the price list: -

http://www.somerford...-Price-List.pdf

It looks like they now only stock it without the logo? i.e. part no: - NAM9183MMQ

Hi guys,

Thanks for the replies. Also, my apologies for my late reply...18 months hahaha oops. I have (last year) got some minilites which look jolly spiffing replacing my Ritz wheels. My Ritz wheels were pretty awful and would need a heap of work to get them in a decent shape. However, I shall take the advice on this and investigate further the centre caps and let you know what happens...hopefully in less than 18 months hhaha.

Cheers guys,

Joe.
