Maybe I should restore the saw tooth wheel covers an lieu of the solid lip ones for my '59.

Lamar, if I had wheels which were painted as nicely as yours, I wouldn't want to hide them behind full covers. Seriously!


Well Ray, I “done” it, I put them on today and every time I pounded on them it really hurt but now it looks like it did “then”.

Hey PLS they look great, Its good you were able to find some good ones. I am just glad that they did make the 2 different types or it would have been a real pain trying to source rims with the nubs.
Talking about wheel covers I have a 1960 El camino I was going to go the original dog dish route. But then saw the price they want for the dog dish covers. Some corvettes of that era use the same ones so you are bidding against the corvette boys they have deeper pockets than me. They are also very delicate so a lot of them break and damage easily also.
Overall I think the full covers look better anyway all the best.
By the way your Impala looks to be the same original color as my El camino although someone has repainted my car red now.

I had the same problem that you had. My rims were off a 6cly car with the small hubcaps so they didn't have the nubs. I took my mig welder and welded some nubs on the rims and my hubcaps stay on.
