    do they make a 15 inch rim that will accept a 14 inch hub cap? my 59 ford has its original hubcaps and i would like to keep them but its getting harder to find tires for them.

    you can use a 15" trim ring and screw the 14" hub cap to it...

    '59 caps? If they were '57 type, I could see it.
    Send Wheelkid a PM. He and his Dad make hub cap adaptors for many makes, (mostly the small center types)
    I should say he will find a solution.

    Monsterflake's suggestion should be considered; the caps might clip onto the beauty rings. If not, do like he says: "Screw it"!

  7. These damn rims keep turning gray, found a 14 inch hub cap to cover the problem. ;)

    Please don't do that. Have the wheels cleaned up and either spray with clear are have them powder coated.
