The article mentions that some of the covers were "dyed". Does anyone have any idea what process may have been used? Any first-hand accounts of dyeing a wheel cover?

I have had these ( only 2 ) for about 8 years, I would love to find 2 more.
I am sure they are aftermarket. the center is not a rear gear, it is hollow and made of pot metal.
anyone recognize it?
