    I have just put some blue wheel centre cap badges on this weekend. They came from eBay (search MARLIN Resin 3D Gel Badge)

    One of the front caps is a bit loose and I am keen to find a replacement.

    The silver eBay ones don't fit (I tried a while back).

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for a supplier?

    The ones I have are black plastic with "KN" on the front. 50.5mm grip width and 4.5mm grip depth.

    Oh, and can anyone confirm the correct name of the diamond wheels please?

    Hi, try https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KN-80s-55...sAAOSwfKpfMXT6

    The wheels are just called KN Diamond. I have these wheels, but with a different offset. I am always looking for these with an offset like the ones shown. Do you happen to know what the offset is?

    Thanks Derek, I will take a look.

    The offset is 30mm on my wheels.

    Surely this is a problem for the ebay seller to resolve?

    Hi Steve, you mis-understand.

    The badges are great, they have self-adhesive backing and are stuck onto the black plastic KN wheel centres.

    It is the original black KN wheel centres (30+ years old) which are loose and require replacement.

    I'm hoping someone has found a suitable replacement.

    I took a punt and bought a set. I'll let you know how they fit.
