Anyone have luck finding an aftermarket cover for the wheel that matches the interior?

edit: maybe something like this but in a sand/brown two tone (similar to the Joseph Abboud Regals). http://www.wheelskins.com/eurotone_wheelskin.php

I've got a Wheel Skins cover on my car -

It's not a 100% factory look, but I like it better than the monotone wheel. I also like the extra thickness it gives the wheel.

What I don't like -

- The width of the skin is too much for the Riv's skinny wheel. Now I've got a raised ridge in the center of my rim which is kinda annoying.

- The black insert at the bottom is not wide enough to fit the lines of the Riv's wheel, and it's not even centered.

If I ever have the money I'd like to get a solid grey and a solid black wheelskin and try to make a single properly fitting cover out of them.

Thanks for the information. I looked further at the wheelskins site and they showed something about getting a custom fitting cover. Did you go that route?

On a separate note, I really like the dash/console wood trim on your car. Need to look into that for mine.

I don't think they'll make a custom cover for you. I emailed them about it and they said they didn't do that kind of work.

Search for my dash kit install write-up before ordering. I went through hell to get it to look as good as it does. It's not as easy as buying a kit and sticking the pieces on.
