Looks great! Are those moons + chrome trim rings?

No trim rings, just the full coverage hub caps, I wanted them to cover the full wheel to protect it from the elements. What a difference they make huh!

This is the link to where I got them:

Smoothie Hubcaps 15 inch

Nice...just what I got on our Trade Wind. I wanted to find the moon 'caps' but one of my wheels doesn't have the clips to fasten the caps to. The moon wheel covers are the same kind that I had on my first car a '48 Ford back in '54. Cool I was . Still am .

Did the baby moons clip on the nubs or did you have clips on your wheels?

Thanks Kevin!

Neil, I got these after I saw yours!

BwaySteve, although I do have the 6 clips on the inside of the wheel for the smaller baby moon (6" dia.) I opted for this style because it covered the wheel from the elements plus I personally prefer the look of the "smoothies". I did have to squeeze each tab on the hub caps a little with a pliers before I pushed them on and I also used some rubber mallet "persuasion" around the very edges.

Hi Jezi,
How about a report on how these baby moons are working out? Do they still look good and do they stay secure to the wheel? Have you lost one yet?

Mike, Here is an update:

We have travelled thousands of miles so far on them. They still look beautiful! I have to admit when I 1st put them on they made the trailer look less shiney than it is because they are absolutely mirror! Now they have some dirt on them so they match her! The 1st few rest stops I was counting hubcaps to make sure I still had 4! Why do I do that?

Definately glad I bought them!

I gotta admit that style does look good.

How is the finish holding up Jezibels?
