Re: Need help finding correct center cap screw



Thanks for all the help.  Apparently just about every American Racing Torque Thrust wheel on the planet uses an 8-32 Stainless Steel Flat-Head Socket Cap Screw to fasten the caps.  These exist at Lowes.  My wheel wants an 8-36 screw which of course does not exist at Lowes, or my local hardware store.  In fact, neither have any type of 8-36 screw.  They were probably short-handed at the factory that day and pulled some guy in from accounting to fill in that wanted to use up some of the unused inventory (make the book look better).  I was able to find such a fastener on the Internet at McMaster-Carr.  Minimum ordering unit is 100, so if anyone needs 99 of these things let me know.  LOL!

I have the attached wheels on my car, and somehow I've managed to lose one of the screws that holds on the center cap.  Its actual a flat headed allen wrench kind of screw.  I'm told these are American Racing Torque Thrust wheels, but some older vintage that was actually made in Canada.  I cannot confirm the accuracy of either of these two statements.  I've talked to some wheel gurus but got nowhere. I've managed to get an American Racing center cap screw that looks identical to mine, but it turns out the threads are slightly coarser.  Any of you have these wheels and can confirm what they are?  Any source for the dang screws?
