I went through this with the OZ rims on my Z4. After much sluething and many inquiries, I finally came to the conclusion I couldn't get BMW on the center caps. I couldn't even get emblems that would stick on the OZ centercaps because they are convex and are attached via some propietary configuration. Therefore I couldn't change them to a flat center cap to stick a BMW emblem on. I spent many hours and finally gave up. Not saying you can't get it done with those wheels.

Here's all I got.

I personally feel Alpina caps generate positive buzz. Avoiding complaints re: M3 Poseur from enraged M3 owners who paid the premium, displaying Alpina is a fresh, new approach!

Or, you may wish to polish your artistic skill. Enamels are nice.

Honestly? Local graphics shop. See if there is a vinyl sign maker in town who can fab some overlays. May have to slip a little cashish his way to avoid copyright infringement. But the glossy stickers being made in some places these days are pretty high quality. A curved surface on the rim hub could be tough, but it may be worth checking.

I would suggest you contact the manufacturer. I contacted OZ and they gave me the center cap size. However, as I mentioned above, that did little for me because the way they are attached on OZ wheels is unique. So you cannot just substitute another center cap even if it is the correct size. Have no clue whether that is the situation with MSR wheels. Just giving you a heads up to check that.

If your wheels are 5-112, the center caps are the least of your problems. BMW bolt spacing is 5-120, your ET needs to be about 35mm and your hub needs to be 72.6mm.
