I am looking for 5 beauty/trim rings for the original 6 lug 57 3100 wheels that take the 57 center caps. I need the 5ith for the spare on the side.
I have seen some on classic parts that "say" they fit but they are either stainless or chrome but just plain. as seen here stainless 2 " Beauty Ring - for 15" Original Style Rims 47-72
And here: Chrome 2 Beauty Ring-15 Repro 47-72
Both say they fit 47 to 72 15" wheels.
I like those OK but would prefer some I have seen that have 4 rings/ribs around the base of them. Like these: Ribbed beauty Trim Rings 15" 1 1/2 deep
But I see that those are 1.5 inch whereas the others from classic parts are 2 inch. How would I know if they will fit and how they would fit around the valve stem?
Does anyone know of some good trim rings that will definitely fit the stock 3100 15" wheel?
I saw some cars with this style on their wheels and a few did not come close to the valve stem, as in there was more space at the valve than you would want. It fit but did not look correct.
I would like to avoid that.
Also I would like them to appear somewhat stock or time period correct. So would that be the 2 inch plain ones?
I do not have the money for a $1000 set of Cameo style trim rings and the 55-56 version of those are offered at classic parts but they cover a little too much of the wheel for me to like.
