I got these black Center caps back when I had different wheels. When I got these wheels, they didn't have caps either. These caps fit, but not perfect. there is almost 1/4" visible gap

I kept telling myself I would trim them to fit better, but never seemed to get around to it. Well, I finally had the time. It took almost half an hour to get done.
Using a pair of Dyke's ( wire cutters) i snipped about 1/16" off of each side of each tab and used a file to smooth it out and to fit/look better.
