Need To Replace Lost Pro Comp Wheel Cap Bolt

I am curious if anyone can provide additional information or assistance with an issue I have finding a replacement bolt.

You would think this would be something easy to find, but it is turning out to be difficult.

Over a year ago, I had the tires on our SMB rotated. In the process, one wheel cap bolt got lost. I have been searching for a replacement bolt. I thought this would be an easy part to find, but it is not. I contacted Sportsmobile, they also are have trouble tracking one down. I emailed Pro Comp about a replacement but I have not received any information in return.

Has anyone else had this issue with ProComp wheels?

If you know of a source where I can purchase a couple of wheel cap bolts that would fit, please let me know. These bolts seem to be extra long. I think this is the issue in finding a replacement.

Here are the wheels I have:

McMaster.com will probably have it, if you know the thread size.. Take one out and bring to local hardware store, figure out the thread size and pitch, and if they don't have one, order one up online.

Thanks for information. I went to McMaster.com and they do have a great selection of bolts. The problem is the length (Check out the picture with the tape measure). Most hardware stores Iíve been to have bolts with the correct thread size but not the length. I talked with Pro Comp directly. They suggested buying a wheel cap cover, it comes with the bolts so I think Iíll do that.

Yeah. The length isn't an issue at McMaster. Here's a stainless 5/16-18 x 2.5 inch:

What's the thread size? If you can't find it McMaster give me a minute and I'll send you the link.

Rallypanam, sorry I am just getting back to you.

Here is the thread size. 6mm x 1.00. I ordered a replacement wheel cap cover and it came with two bolts and allen to install the cap. But it would be nice to know another source for the bolts. Let me know what the link is. Thanks for your help.
