    Will the center wheel caps listed on ebay at item 270356833790 fit correctly on the stock 1997 456 GTA wheels? These caps on offer are of silver color horse and background rather than the stock yellow background, black horse. Thanks for your advice.

    Anyone have the Ricambi part # for standard "black horse" caps for a 575? Discovered that the clear plastic on 3 out of 4 is cracked on mine. Been meaning to replace for sometime.

    Thanks, for $98 a set, you'd think they would find a way to make them more shatter-resistant.

    Get the Titanium set, no more crazing. :)

    Looks interesting, but a bit less classic. Ever seen the titanium caps on an actual wheel before?

    They did. These new ones are aluminum, not plastic and will not shatter.

    I bought a set of Titanium caps last week, they came in such a nice box that I may have to save then for Christmas, :)

    Anyway, I was going to put them on the 550 which has one or two crazed, but then I think they may look better on the 355 which has gun metal color wheels and put the 355 caps which are perfect on the 550.

    I think I read that the SIlver caps were a change when they went to the 456M Modificata sometime in 1998. Mine has the silver but I like the Yellow better... I bought yellow- change every now and then for something new...

    ? I just got a set of these back into stock. Pretty rare find, I suspect.

    I am unsure this is the correct part number, regarding the color code --- but they are quite nice looking.

    Don't know about the part number but they are the standard 456M centre caps. Quite pricey compared to the yellow/black normal ones.

    Yes, Taz, they are the ones. I'll check my 456M parts book to verify the part #. That's a dandy of a price! The NF2 wheels do look very much better with these caps (IMHO). The cavalino rampante (spelling) is removable so a paint job would be no problem.
