Default Searching for center hub caps

Markus, I have "Dog Dish" (as they are called) hubcaps on my '59 Tbird. My rims have the four "nubs" on them that allow you to pop those hubcaps right onto the rim. I found mine on eBay, and you can find them there, because I just looked. Mine are NOS, and as such, they were not cheap. However, you can also find them used. They are 10.5 Inch hubcaps, as I recall. These are gold colored, but they also come in white. Here is what mine look like.

Ray's hubcaps are 10-1/4" diameter which is typical for Ford 'dog dish' type hubcaps.

I don't know of any hubcaps that are six and a half inches in diameter. Either re-check your size or perhaps you are looking for an 'insert' that goes inside a hubcap. - Dave

Those wheels are Ford GT style wheels around 1967+. At least the center cap was "GT". cjponyparts has them by Scott Drake.
They are plain, lacking the "GT" emblems.

Smallest size 'baby moons' I could find are around 8.6" nub to nub.
