Bolt on hubcap covers for MPG that I won't lose >:|

Anybody know of any 5x100 bolt pattern hubcaps for a 15" wheel? My 90s hatch i had had bolt on hubcap covers for its 4x100 bolt pattern it had and they were all there after 20 years. I would like to do normal looking covers and wrap them again with a carbon fiber vinyl, but I lose one every couple months so the whole excerise is useless. lol
I also can't do mooncaps. Just too ugly. I already drive a prius okay.

I think the Prius would look good with Moon disks and massive wheel spats and diffuser.

Are you looking for a center cap, hub cap or wheel disk?

I'm also of the opinion they'd look good on a Prius.



EDIT: Can't help ya about hub caps though. I haven't ever had a vehicle with 'em. Always alloys, since they're dirt cheap from a junkyard and have such a weight advantage.

I had a photo of my old covers and they were very under the radar.

Your the one slagging on the Prii's looks? And you drive one?

Here's proof a good stance can help, just no room for spats.

I also looked for that, for the same reason. Didn't find anything. It seems all the bolt-on wheel covers are 4x100.

I have 4x100 wheels. Is there an example of a bolt-on cover?

I was going to 3D print some center caps.

These lol

Shoot we may have to 3d print some bolt on wheel covers. What plastic would be tough enough i wonder.

ya know.. I didn't realize it but searching bolt on wheel cover instead of hub caps gets some results.
