'05 Wheel Center Caps

I've got my 2005 GTO at a tire place getting some new tires today. It still has the OEM wheels (with 245/45-17 tires). The manager called and told me it looks like someone, somewhere, once upon a time must've broken a couple of the center caps and GLUED them back on. He called a Pontiac dealer to price some new ones, and they were--gasp--$120 EACH! What the!? Anyone know a less-expensive way to obtain these center caps?

Found this resource online: CenterCaps.net - Cap Listing - Pontiac Details - G6 Does that look about right for these center caps? Apparently, the center cap for GTO wheels is the same as for a G6. I called a buddy of mine who works at a dealership and confirmed that the GM Parts prices is, indeed, $125 each. Crazy.

That sems crazy high considering you can get the Holden ones*(set of 4) for $200ish shipped for a set for Assie Land. Maybe check out JHP?

You could also search some forums. You can get a whole set of used 17s for a few $100 worst case. Also call Cleveland Pick-A-Part or fParts to see if they have any.

$30 each on eBay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/ONE-04-06-Po...53dab9&vxp=mtr

I believe your statement might have given the impression that parts are cheap. Hope you meant to say "If people haven't figured out parts for these cars are extremely expensive. . . better sit down."

if the car is driven fast, really fast, would the caps tend to fly off or not?
