5th. gen. center caps

These caps are getting harder and harder to find at swap meets, most have at least one or two broken clips and the sellers are asking top dollar. Someone stole my caps last year, along with the 14" trim rings.

The solution was EBay!! There is a hubcap shop selling reproduction center caps for about $50.00 a set w/shipping. They look great and fit like the originals. He also sells them as a single, but the price for a set of four can't be beat!! These caps also fit Monte Carlo however, the center red design is different for a Monte Carlo. He does sell both styles, so look closely for the standard Chevrolet emblem. The trim rings are out there, 14" is not a high demand ring. The whole drawback is that while they made thousands of these trim rings and center caps, they are becoming harder to locate. Since mine were stolen, I've begun to gather spares at swap meets. Good luck and try EBay.
