    Police hubcaps

    Post  shnalla on Tue Jul 28, 2015 9:18 am

    Hi,

    My wagon came with optional wheel covers, but I do not really like it on my car.
    My steel wheel got painted satin black and I drive it without wheel cover.

    I wonder if these hubcaps will fit my stock steel wheel ?

    The standard hub cap for the Impala back then was similar to those.  They were standard on all the 9C1s back then too, so even if you have the 5x5 bolt pattern they should go right on.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Here are my wheels. Is it supposed to be bolted on the wheel or something ?!

    They use a "friction" fit. They mount over/around the circle near the center of the wheels.
