No.

Coroplast is cheap and impermanent. If you want cheap get Moon disks and zip-tie them on. To do justice to what you have, there is a particular JDM wheel that was a spoke wheels with a dished cap that fit into between the spokes as an aerodynamic upgrade. If I remember what it's called I'll come back and edit this. You could make something similar by indexing a cap and cutting 15 notches in the rim.

Else, a center cap with left/right handed knock-offs that just hold the disk.
