center caps for cup 2's

I got my 993 porsche cup 2's on my ghia, well at least my shop did. It looks good but the center caps I have wont fit on because they are concave in. I know there a a few of you here with modern porsche wheels, have you found any center caps that fit?

These are two pics I took today. The beam in the front is adjusted all the way up, will come down at least an inch.

with my bug sectioned the front bearing covers to get more space. I think I got away with using the concave centres..

For the front I think thin spacers will work. I dunno about the rear though. Where can I find decent spacers to try this out with? And can anybody recommend a size or two to try.

I used 6mm custom-made spacers from WheelAdapter.com on the front and over-the-counter 8mm spacers on the rear so the "VW" cap on my BBS wheels would fit. (The rear spacers were more to keep the all four wheels symmetrical to their respective fenders than for the cap.)

They're called washers and you can buy them at any hardware store
As long as you aren't driving it they will work to get your spacing right. Then just measure the washers and buy the spacers for that thickness.
