Center Cap Problem

I have recently put on a set of mustang replica cobra R rims on my truck. obviously without thinking and without wanting to add spacers in the front but the center caps don't fit. Does anyone have any kind of suggestion for a website or something along those lines that sells aftermarket caps? The problem is that the bearing shield sticks out too far... I've tried modifying the caps that came with the rims by grinding the back out but its not enough. And help would be greatly appreciated.

I run 17" Mustang rims usually,I could fit the caps on either , I ended up cutting a 2"dia hole in the exact center of the cap , and then no more problems , all that I have to do is paint the dust cap to match the center cap
