Default Vintage Style Hub Caps

Anyone had any experience with these http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...p-1282/c-10109


or these http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...p-1832/c-10109

They would look good if they fit. Some of the old style hubcaps won't fit wheels on front wheel drive cars. I'd suggest that you make sure that someone has actually used the caps you want on a PT Cruiser before putting money into them.

Thanks, that was why I asked. I felt like you that it would be better to check around. They did come up on a PT Cruiser search at the site.

I had those for awhile on my black '03 with 15" wheels. I lost one due to a loose fit. If you go with them and need any extras let me know as I still have the remaining three. I now have chrome smoothies with naked centers that were powder coated black. I also installed porta walls to add to the retro style. This combo acheived the look that I was seeking. Hope this helps and good luck which ever way you go.

Where did you find Porta walls? A friend of mine has been looking all over for them.

Someone told me you could line the contact area of the wheel with some good ole duct tape to give hub caps something to bite into.

I had a '91 Caprice that constantly slung the hub caps. I finally traded my OEM wheels for some wheels that would accept dog dish hub caps. That big barge was so heavy the OEM wheels were flexing and throwing the caps.
