I worked in a place where we had kits that came with various sizes of wheel cylinders, so I had cups to fit anything for years. As long as the outer boots are ok you can change the guts after you hone them.

With my car, NEW wheel cylinders were cheaper than the kits, but if you have something hard to find new ones, just do the cup thing.
