wheel center caps-2014-2019 Taurus

Check this out...I recently purchased a 2018 Taurus and love this ride (I also have a 2002 SE that I bought new). Well as it goes I pulled too close to a curb and rashed up the front wheel. After fruitlessly trying to kick myself in the a--, I ordered a new wheel on line. Genuine Ford replacement wheel part 1007-E charted out to fit my Taurus. Well turns out when I had it mounted, I discovered that the center cap form the original wheel wouldn't fit. So I ordered a center cap specifically for the 1007-E. I just got it today and it fits like it should. Only trouble is, its painted silver and my original is chrome. Question...Anybody out there know if there is a chrome center cap for this wheel available. I don't understand why ford would change such a little detail like that. I just want to make my Taurus "whole again" Thanks in advance

You could always buy 3 more silver painted center caps or get your original wheel repaired and put it back on with the chrome center cap use your new 1007-E wheel as a spare.
