These new hubcaps are all made by the same
manufacturers, and so will be the same regardless of
where you buy them. I personally do not like the these
replacement hubcaps. They are not pressed as crisply
as the originals - noticeable around the centre circle
depression - on the originals it is a small radius
lip, whereas on these it is a much larger radius.
Also, judging by the quality of the chrome on the new
bumpers I bought for my Mk2 Spitfire, there will be
just enough chrome to make them look shiny, and with
the first sign of moisture will start pitting.
Needless to say I would recommend getting your old
ones rechromed, as I am going to have to do with my
