Or there's stuff like this at crafts stores:  https://www.hobbylobby.com/Fabric-Sewing/Sewing-Quilting-Notions/Buttons/Silver-Round-Shank-Buttons---21mm/p/80846199

Cursing as myself for not buying a mixed bag of chromed domes or studs or buttons or whatever they were at a crafts store I was in a couple of years ago. It was a mixed bag of what looked like different scale model car baby moon caps, only around $3 or so. Haven't seen that product since ...

I think it's Hart's Parts that makes the Moon disc covers. 

I tried the soda can thing but no can I've come across has a smooth center, and I've looked at a lot of cans.

I recently changed my wife's license plate cover to a fancy one with screw covers so I put them on a wheel and they fit quite well. They need to be trimmed down but I think they would work and are cheap.

The attached pic shows some from Walmart but they can be found at many auto parts stores.

Those stamped numbers will sand away when you "turn" them.
