    Yes , you are correct but they have a way matching the anodizing color on the wheels.

    Rick Hartbrodt (https://www.fuchsrestoration.com) does anodize the centre caps. He uses a protective coating to preserve the prongs so they don't come loose. They look great (I have a set). He did send one wrong one, but that's being remedied. His wheels look terrific too, at least in the pictures.

    I also just had a set of deep six wheels refinished by Rick. The wheels look great and Rick is very easy to do business with. It took about four weeks to complete. I have been on Harvey's waiting list for a long time and I finally just decided to move on to another wheel refininisher.
