Really it looks like you need a TN member. It's posted to the ATL craigslist but lists Chattanooga TN as the location, phone number matches that too.

I actually see TN ads fairly common on the local craigslist, annoying, but guess they're hoping someone wants to drive the 5 hours each way (or more with traffic) to get something...

That is a very good price if they are actual Chromadoras and not copies. However, it is likely cost considerably more to ship the rims and tires anywhere.

It cost me right at $200 to have a set of 17 inch wheels with tires from Florida to Texas via ups.

I could likely provide small center caps at fairly reasonable prices if someone actually needs/wants them. For a very unreasonable price I can also provide a complete set of large center caps.

BTW, I sent the listed seller an e-mail two days ago and have received no response as of this moment. The wheels look real but who knows where/how the pictures were acquired so you will need to be careful about a potential scam if you want to buy these wheels.

The ad does say he doesn't check e-mail often. May try to text him.

I wasn't into these cars that much when they were common and don't have a Mera or Ferrari clone, but looked around the net a bit for info on center caps while looking for some for an aftermarket set I need. Were the SMALL centers common to the Fiat that I see out there or are they unique? Did I read correctly that the original LARGE ones are mocked on a Fiero center cap? Sounds unlikely but thought I saw that.

The original large center caps for the Chromadoras are about six inches in diameter and the small ones are about the size of a stock Fiero center cap. If you are really interested, I can provide some photos after I downsize them.

BTW, I finally got an e-mail from the seller and he told me that they were sold to someone from PA that paid him $275 (IIRC) to hold them until he could drive down to pick them up.

He put them on eBay so I bought them. Hopefully one day I'll find a Mera owner that is need of a set. I can make some center caps for them.

Rodney,

I also have two spare sets of Chromadoras if anyone has a real desperate need for a set.
