How Do Stock Hub Caps Fit?

Dec 26, 2008
I just bought some OE wheels with hub cap clips. How do the hub caps fit? Do you beat them on? Seems the O.D. of the tabs are almost too big? I guess you could bend the clips in some to make the fit easier. I think there is actually supposed to be a gap between the clip and the wheel? Just wondering if anybody has done this before. Hate to ruin my new wheels or my old hub caps.

Thanks, Ben.

/this\. I have the original wheels and caps from 1979. They are so tight I hurt myself taking them on and off. So I just keep the caps off most of the time. Dab of grease is necessary to make life easier.
