How tight are hub caps supposed to fit. 87 brougham. There is a 1/4-1/2" gap between rim and cap, are they supposed to fit flush against rim? Hit one side and other side pops out. Hate to lose one. Thanks

A lot of those hub caps are cheap and depend on the lock bolt in the middle to hold them on. The sides should sit pretty close to the rim tho.

They are original caps, have part # stamped on rear. I finally pounded 2 on, pretty good fit, still a minor gap. Will the locking mechanism keep them from falling off?
Does yours have one or two locks on them?, do you have a key to secure them with ?.

I think by the mid 80s they all had the wire hubcaps with the red centre you pop out to get to the lock bolt.
