Anyone know how these hub covers attach?

As it says.
The hole is too large to attach via the wheel nuts and they would undoubtedly break the plastic. So, should there be something else that i am missing?

They are screwed to the wheel from the back side of the wheel. Look on the back (wheel) side of the cap and you will see 4 to 6 holes that a sheet metal screw would go into.

Should have worn my glasses. Yep three threaded holes on each and I just happened to have a pack of stove bolts sat next to them and they fit. Not sure that whet I will use to fix them though. Also considering a set of Argosy hub caps too, which a very shiny and nice.
Thanks for the input Appreciated!

Make sure the screws you use are not too long, or they will pop through the plastic cap and out the front side.

As someone said to me, as rare as hen's teeth!
I also have four of these which I was going to sell but I guess I will keep them, as it looks like I will recover my investment in the parts I bought without having to. These are not secure though and could easily be pried off, or is there any king of locking mechanism that could keep that from happening?

Apparently. The red stripe only looks red, its actually more the colour of the belt line insert, sort of orangy

I believe they do make wheel cover locks though i'm not certain how they fit on to the covers but i'm sure a google search will bring up lots of answers

I think the best solution I have read is to take them off whilst moving and refit them when parked. I dont know if that suggestion was a joke but it certainly makes sense.
