Hi everyone-
What rim will take original 1959 GMC HubCaps??
Or any creative ways to attach my caps to other rims?
Here is. Pic of my wheel, the hubcap, and the one of the clips
I bought.
The clips are way to small; ie do not come up high enough to catch
Inside of hubcap.

Cruising in the Passing Lane
clip caps will not work on those later wheels with the "nubs", need previous to 1960, last year for clips

That question has been asked before on this forum. I do believe that a search here on that topic will reveal at least one interesting way to solve your problem. I have saved that info for my future use on my 57 3100.
As I recall, it uses 80's k-10 centers for ralley wheels popular then and still today, which are modified for the clips required for your caps.
Search for it as it is worth looking at.

This is what you need. 3 clip 15" or 16".
