I have actually seen some of these plastic ones at Harbor Freight before.

I looked online and saw one you can print out, if you want to go to the trouble of cutting it out and such. You can then just slide it over your hub and see what bolt pattern lines up, so you will know for sure what you need.
On even number of studs, instead of measuring center to center, measure from inside one stud to outside of the opposite stud. Much easier and more accurate.
