Baby moon hubcaps

Post by mariner »

Hi. Anyone any experience of fitting these? Are they a good fit on the standard 14'' steelies? Have had someone tell me they can be a bit prone to falling off. Are some better quality than others? Cheers.

Had a set on mine until I lost one after a service, now gone to a set of VW Carat alloys 

I would suggest cable tie on so they do not fall off.

Have them on standard 14” steel wheels. Lost one on at least 1/2 doz occasions but luckily always spotted it happening at relatively low speed. I’ve spent many an hour searching through hedges and trees!

What you get up to in trees & hedges is probably best left unsaid However, on that dubious note; back in the 70’s, searching through hedges in the local park always came up trumps with some illicit colourful material !

Hmm, that doesn't sound particularly promising - exactly what I was hoping not to hear! Thanks for the heads up.
