Hub caps for standard 14.5" rim

Hi all,
I'm looking for hub caps to fit on a 14.5" rim in attached photo. I don't think baby moons or any of the original airstream hub caps will fit with these clips. If I am wrong i would love to make some moons fit but if not, I just love to get some chrome to cover the rims. Any thoughts?
Thanks!

PS - also a pic attached of the fresh polish job on the 59'

Split-rim?

That looks very similar to the split rim that was on our 63, if so it would be best to change it out.

Thanks Bob

Thanks Bob,
I'm thinking about getting some 15" rims from Vintage Trailer Supply, we have some dome hubs that should fit. Do you or anyone else know about axles that have a dog-leg in them to lower the trailer? We had one when we bought it but replaced it with a straight tube axle, it raised it up a bit and we're not crazy about that....Jeff n Molly

Jeff,

Our Safari had the early torsion axle so I'm not familiar with your set up.

But what about the old hot rod trick....add lowering blocks, or if it's mounted under the axle flip to mount the axle above the spring.
