    Ok, So I have decided to bite the bullet and throw the steel wheels back on my falcon, and want to run chrome bullet lug nuts with spider rings. The falcon is a 62 with 13" 4 lug wheels. The outer diameter of the hubcap ring on the wheel is roughly 9" and there are 3 "lugs" that hold the cap/ring onto the wheel.

    Does anyone know of a source for something like this? I spoke with wheel kid this afternoon, and we think we might have come up with a solution, but are not certain yet.

    Any help that you might be able to offer is appreciated!

    It mounts on like a hubcap, its not a beauty ring, if that makes sense.

    The only manufacturer for the spider ring caps that I've ever heard of was Cal Custom. As far as I know, they made a few different configurations for various wheel centers, but finding a set might be very hard to do. If no one makes a repop set, then it looks like it's time to start surfing ebay! I got lucky and found a set a few years ago at a swap meet and grabbed them, not knowing at all what they fit. I figure I'll use them someday when I finally discover what wheel they go on...happy hunting!

    This pic is NOT what Falcon trim rings look like !!!

    I have a SET of 4 Original Cal Custom Trim Rings & Spider bullit assy's i had on my Daughters '62 Falcon.

    They were N.O.S. in the box when i got them.. Still have the box also.

    They are NOT For Sale ... But i would trade them for Rings & Bullits for the 5on5.5 bolt pattern for my '55 F-100

    I know thats not how a falcon set mounts, I was only using it as a reference to help show what I was looking for! The falcon set should mount like a dogdish hubcap.
     
  11. Talking to Jimmy was probably your best bet.

    would it be easier to just cut the centres out of some hubcaps?
