  6. Those are some beautiful wheelcovers and they would look sweet on your Chebbie.

  7. These would look great. I think these are early 40s (42?)

    I've heard of people attaching 15" diameter hubcaps onto 16" trim rings as kind of an adapter of sorts. Just a thought.

    Lyons caps are very pretty but hard to come by in good shape, and that car looks too nice for a driver-quality set.

    I used a set of adapters so that I could run Lyons on my 48. I can post a close up pic when I get home if you want.

    How about 16" Moon Racing disc--- the screw-on type, from Speedway.
     
  12. Or......you should be able to find a set of the wide chrome trim rings that use the small
    hubcap that you have. Ebay is usually a good source for such items. However, I just
    checked the 'bay and not anything Chevy specific on just now (7-11-14). The wide rings
    look generally like these.

    Lyons would be the natural choice. I just keep my eyes on the various classifieds and auction sites and have pieced together a few sets over the last couple years, just buying ones and twos at a time...

    Another lower-cost, and easier to find, option would be 1941-49 Buick wheel covers, they were all 16"s until 1950.
