Thread: Hubcap retaining clips wanted

    Hubcap retaining clips wanted

    Where can I find some clips to hold my hubcaps? These might be Kaiser vintage, but the wheels look very Willys, and I don't know were else to look. This is a '66 Jeep pickup with 16" wheels that look smooth like a Willys wheel. Each wheel has three slots and should have three sprign steel clips that snap into those slots (not riveted).

    Don,

    Let me see what I have in my wheel collection. It seams to me that I had at least one wheel with the clips installed, but I didn't study them closely. I'll try and slide out to the rack and see what I have, then we'll go from there. I want to say that the wheel has them riveted on, like what is available through Kaiser Willys; https://www.kaiserwillys.com/hub-cap...nar-suspension
    UPDATE;. I looked at what I have, and they are the clips applied with rivets. The slots in the wheels are very similar to the one you have pictures, except the rivets. I'll post pictures of the one I have in a while. Note, the wheel that I have is a 15", and came with my '63 wagon.

    Yours is a different design, as you stated. Here may be a source to at least find some information, or they may have the reproduction clips;

    Don,

    Here is a source that has matching wheels to your pictures, in 16". They may have a source or a lead for the spring clips, because everything I can come up with that isn't riveted is for a Volvo or VW.
