I am looking for some good 73 hubcaps and I saw those you mentioned on e-bay. I still have my old ones but my clips are bad. I had somebody e-mail that they would sell me theirs for $50.00 each, but I was trying to figure out how to fix the clips on my old hub caps. I don't want to buy hubcaps with brittle clips.

I just take my hub caps on vacation with me and put them on when I camp. It works for now. I have tried all the internet hub cap places and I have bought new hubcaps but they won't stay on.

Somebody recommended using small sheet metal screws and anchor them to the rim. That just seemed to risky for me.

I'm glad you are happy. I hope you like them. It's been a year since I've laid eyes on them. They are in no way perfect. But they stayed on the trailer. I removed them to go with the baby moon trim ring look. I just don't want you to expect too much of them.

BigGoofBall:

Where did you buy your baby moons and outer rings? How much did you pay for everything. I was considering that option. Are you happy with them?

I bought the cheapest plastic chrome rings I could find. I think ebay. or JC Whitney.

The baby's I got from ebay. they have an "Airstream" script type sticker in the center that has been slowly coming off over the past year. i'm pretty sure that seller is still on there. And has the baby moons available w/o the sticker so do that.

happy? - trim rings are great! couldn't be happier. bang for the buck best visual mod. baby's are really nice, beautiful, in fact. My steel wheels are original and the clips are brittle so I need to be careful when mounting the moons. The problem comes when attempting to remove. It is near impossible to get a screw driver between the cap and the wheel to pry it off. Obviously I got to find this out when attempting to change a flat.

I have a technique now and will not do damage to another baby moon, but the one that had to come off has some ... issues. You cannot see them from a helicopter though.

So, overall I'm supremely happy with the look. mostly satisfied with the quality. I have a photo around here somewhere .... oh yeah! justl click the link in my signature.

I hope I'm not hijacking this post, but I just got a 72 overlander with hubcaps like mentioned above. I want new wheels (rims?) to go with my old hubcaps. Any suggestions?

Thanks

In looking to make my spare, I found these wheels. I am not certain they will hold the hubs, but I'm hoping so!

15" Trailer Wheel

If someone knows otherwise, please alert!!!!
