Just back from my trip out west and some where along the way I lost two wheel hubs. I ordered two from Gowesty but they are to small. Is there another hub for these wheels?

They look the same as the Gowesty that do not fit. Is there another choice?

Call Van Cafe and tell them you need a center cap for the Rhein wheel. I could not find the caps on their website but they may have some that are not listed.

FAS produces the Rhein wheels stateside. I would check with them.

I have Rheins and the ones I purchased from Van Cafe' fit fine.
