Classic Makes - Hubcaps, Wheel Covers & Center Caps

On this page you will find links to all of our classic car pages, some of which feature hubcaps, wheel covers and center caps dating back to the 1940's! Our restoration department has years of experience making these older hub caps look like they just rolled off the factory lines and we promise you won't be disappointed with the quality of our work! Don't forget to order your wheel cover tool!|
Are precisely what the term implies: this hub cap covers the entire wheel instead of just a portion. Only the balancing weights show on the outer edge of the wheel whereas the later models go all the way to the edge of the rim.
The literal meaning is something that covers the “Hub” portion of the rim as opposed to hiding the whole thing. Technically, a center cap is exactly the same as a hub cap.
Despite being the same thing as a hubcap but very different from a wheel cover, over time people have used the word 'hubcap' to describe all three.
