    Hi Everyone,
    I have a set of Chevy Hub Caps that are stamped BLC USA Made, they measure 9 1/2” overall diameter and 7 1/2 “ on the mounting ring diameter. These do not fit my 15” 6 lug GM Artillery Wheels with the clips. Can anyone tell me what year they are. I attached some pictures.
    Thanks,
    RJG

    they sure look like they'd fit something like a 53 Chevy car. They're 5 lug, smaller wheel center

    I think they're 51-53, since Chevy went to the outer type hubcap in 54.

    Those fit my 59 Chevy pick up. Believe they’re from 52ish car.

    Yes, those are early 50's Chevrolet passenger car hubcaps.
    The hubcap you need, (that I've found), that work for your 15" artillery wheels look like the below picture.
    I found them on Hubcap Mike website listed as "Airstream baby moon hubcaps". (not cheap either)
    Their description:
    These are Made in the USA travel trailer baby moon hubcaps. Replacement for 1940 to 1975 Airstream hubcaps (baby moons). Truck hubcaps (moon center caps) for 1940 thru 1963 Chevrolet trucks and also 1940-1948 Chevy passenger cars.

    Airstreams used 6 lug wheels with clips, and a deep hub...in case you were wondering. Just like old Chevy trucks.

    Chevy says 51-53. But what do they know. (they also give a measurement to check)
