Post nostalgic slotted mag wheels

I just picked up a set of slotted Ansen wheels for my 69 Camaro that I don't see on cars that often anymore. They have the 5 ear tabs on the center caps and are screwed right to the front of the wheels. My problem is that I don't have all of the Ansen sprint caps. Does anyone know where I might find these online? I would settle for Mickey Thompson caps too.
Also, are Fenton wheels copies of the Ansen's? They seem to look the same. I couln't tell the difference without looking on the back for the name.

I've got a set of Ansen's (and caps thankfully)and also some look alike E-T's. I think Ansen originated the slots as well as the uni-lug concept. You might punch up Ansen uni-lug in a search engine, I have on several occasions and there are places that sell some parts,some of them are old speed shops that deal in used stuff as well.

I'm pretty sure that Fentons came before Ansens
