Default Alternative Center Caps for "Apollo" style Gallardo wheels?

I bought a scruffy set of Apollos for my new-to-me Gallardo and had them refinished in something approximating the gray "Titanium" factory color option. The center caps on the Apollo (shared with one other wheel) are not just button/covers for the center, but have a color-keyed flange that wraps around the lug bolts.

Before I go through the trouble of trying to color match these center caps to the powder coat on the wheels, does anyone know if any of the Cassiopeia etc. "button" style center caps will fit on the Apollo? I'd hate to throw money at a set only to just have to re-sell them if they don't fit and East TN doesn't exactly have a slew of other people I could ask to test fit one...

Thanks!

Thanks for the tip. Between my first post and now I managed to color match the ones I had pretty closely (the Poweder coat did not provide a matching color code unfortunately).

To piggyback on OPs initial question of where to find the 'button' style caps, does anyone have any ideas?

If there are no OEM versions that fit, can anyone recommend a shop or vendor that will design custom center caps? I have to believe it's possible to get some custom center caps that fit, as an alternative to the OEM caps that wrap around the lug nuts.

Although I no longer have the motivation to pursue it, I considered taking some measurements and talking to some friends who have 3-D printers and associated software to see if something could be done that way. I got the feeling that outside of doing me a favor it might cost more than ordering something from Italy though with the potential CAD and printer time, especially if you wanted it metal-printed vs. plastic filament.
