    I have one, too! NOW I know wth it is!

    OK C grade shape. light pitting, small dent, stem hole bent? wth? haha

    If someone needs for some reason, to complete a set, or add to a collection, PM me.
    Rather help someone out, than it just hang on my wall.

    Although it looks ok, there. haha

    Thanks, they are 16's @straykatkustoms
    I have these Lyons and a set of Hollywood Flippers and trim rings that I keep swapping between. I can't decide which I like better...

    These are mine, I assumed they were Caddy caps, but now I think they might be Lyon caps..

    Neil, those are '51 - '52 Cad, and not the best looking Cadillac wheel cover ever made ... they may have been made by Lyon - check for "Lyon" trademark or maker's mark stamped in the outer band where the teeth are formed.

    Them are '52 Buick caps. Nice looking, but not aftermarket.

    Those caps are 1952 Buick but they may have been manufactured by Lyon. The Lyon company made caps for lots of oem applications for many automobiles. Check on the edges by the mounting clips, some are marked Lyon.

    Are those 52 Buick worth something? I bought 4 for 50$ but I don't know if they are Lyon or Buick.

    Not really, you might be able to double your money, but there's too much dish in them to fit most wheels.

  19. Picked up a full set of 4 of these recently. Stamped Lyon in cursive on the rim. Plymouth ship slightly different from factory caps.

    You are thinking about "Lion", not "Lyon". ;)

    I checked the back of my kaiser hub caps and there was a Lyons stamp on the inside
