Hubcap tabs?

Post by bobr » Tue Apr 10th, 2012 2:01

I have a special deluxe convertible with the full wheel hubcaps but like the look of the smaller center hubcap better. I bought a set on ebay(approx 10in OD and 7.5in on the inside) but they don't fit. I have seen mention of tabs on the wheel that these smaller caps attach to but mine do not have any tabs. Are there different wheel options or can I buy and install these tabs? I'll try to post a photo of the rim and cap when I get home.
Thanks, Bob

Here are some photos, The wheels should be stock and I have seen many 49's with the small center cap. What am I missing?

There is nothing to attach the hubcap to.

Sorry no one replied to your posting .... somehow missed it. Those are NOT stock rims. The stock ones will have some spring clips riveted into the rim to catch the 10" caps and if you use a full wheel cap the cap just fits over them.
