Sprinter wheel simulators

I had a rear tire replaced about a year ago and somewhere between Boise and Salt Lake, I lost the stainless steel simulator, likely because it was not replaced properly. At any rate, I cannot find anyone who has this part. I have checked with Thor, RV Autoparts, Dicor (last week they said they had six but today they have none??), Sprinter.com, and Amazon. Anyone have an idea as to where I might find one—new or used? I’d appreciate your thoughts.

This is a 2014 Mercedes Sprinter 3500 chassis (Siesta Sprinter).

We've lost 4 over 32000 miles. They are notorious for coming out. Used 3 stainless steel zip ties per tire, no problems since.

I ordered here. Set of four was best option. Have a better finish and grip system than original.. I also use the stainless steel zip ties. Not a loss since. I carry a small wire snip along with tire gage to remove rear simulators to check air pressure.

To remove or to seat the simulators use this tire tool.

Thanks everyone. I found what I need at hubcap haven and will definitely try the ties.
