Hi peeps, i got some tws evo's off a 155 narrow body and have fitted them to my 16v 33, i am missing 1 center cap and nut

Anyone know where to get a center cap and black nut with a "black and white alfa romeo badge" on them? as one of mine are missing, simular to these

Or maybe silver nuts CN50S "Centre Nut 50 Silver. Open Face Option"
or chrome CN74C "Centre Nut 74 Chrome." on this page

Instead of being open faced, thats where the alfa romeo badge is

You're stuck to roaming through the small ads' I'm afraid.

The plate and the nuts are the same whatever TSW wheel uses them, so you only have to look for the items themselves, not worry about what car they came off. The Alfa badges have been added later (glued on?) so you'll have to match that up in the parts shop (looks vaguely 75 or Sud Sprint) or replace the 4 as a set for different ones.

It will probably be easier to replace all for as Ralf suggests.

thanks guys, pity that guy on ebay wasnt selling 1 and nothng else. I might get the chrome or silver nuts then and possible get a mate to make a badge, however the nuts listed on the tsw site, have no back plate :(

The nuts are separate parts. You can order them from TSW, same as the back plates (though these are quite old now.. not sure if TSW still male them).

yer, the back plates listed on TSW's site say NC70, mine are NC69. I might get a local garage to order in a NC70 backplate to see if there the same. Then 4 silver nuts, still not sure how to attach a badge to it though, have a look at 1 of the links that i originally posted and you will see the open faced nuts.

The Evo' has a plate that fits into the centre hole from the inside. Usually it has a TSW badge on it. But it's recessed (it fits behind the machined groove for the circlip) so it's nowhere near the nut.

I can't think how your Alfa badges are stuck to the nut to make them flush. Maybe the dude stuck some kind of former underneath, or the badge may be stuck to the rim of the nut..

The only thing I can think of it that it's a custom nut.. with a solid cap.. you'll be able to tell by peeking inside the back of the nut.
