Default Replacing wheel trim/hubcap

Will any universal wheel trim fit the PT or does it have to be a specific type?

I wanted to temporarily replace mine with these

Matt Black 16" Car Wheel Trims Hub Caps 4 Plastic Covers Set Universal 16 INCH | eBay

but wanted to make sure they would fit. Thanks

Hubcaps only fit over a steel wheel. And pt's only come with 15" steels. These are 16".

Sorry, I only just noticed you'd replied

I thought mine had 16" wheels as my tyre size is 16?

Never heard of 16" steel wheels on a PT - the factory steel wheels were 15"; the 16 & 17" wheels were alloy - did you buy the car new?

I have the alloy wheels actually, didn't mention that. They have hubcaps on them though, factory ones.

This isn't mine but the wheels are the same

I bought a used a couple of months ago. I don't think the wheels have been replaced or anything though. I've seen the hubcaps like mine for sale on ebay so the alloys do have hubcaps on them for some reason

I'm baffled. Never saw or heard of full-size wheel covers for alloy wheels...so I'm of no help.

Yeah, I thought it was weird. I'll take it to the Jeep dealer nearby and ask them. Thanks for replying anyway.

If I remember right you have to buy a new wheel. Its a chrome clad wheel and the plastic chrome piece is not available separately.
