HUBCAP # w13pont1980_8
This group photo shows a 13 inch Pontiac hubcap made for Phoenix models from roughly 1980 thru 1982. The above gallery images show further details of this nice stainless steel, wire wheel type hubcap design. Design details include crossing wires around the perimeter. In the center is an octagon hub with a removable insert attachment which has a red Pontiac arrow emblem.
For this 1980’s Pontiac hubcap # w13pont1980_8 , the weight is 5.3 pounds each. The wheel attachment method is a carbon steel ring clip design. The back plate has 14 large [1.5″ x 1″] oval holes. The quality is the very best for the limited inventory we have.
[ An alternate design, hubcap # w13pont1980_9 , has a fixed center emblem …see gallery for a comparison image. Both designs are nice 13 inch Pontiac hubcap supply. ]
[And some other similar designs exist, where the removable insert varies and also the manufacturer is not Pontiac. These are for some Chevrolet and Oldsmobile models. If interested these are hubcap # w13chev1982_1 and hubcap # w13olds1980_4 .]
This particular design, w13pont1980_8, has a lock potential to minimize theft. But a lock hardware supply was not necessarily actually supplied. So, this wire wheel hubcap supply, for you, does not include locking hardware in the scope. Nor do we have such locking hardware for this design….see NOTE below for more discussion on use of such hardware.
NOTE Many owners find the locking hardware inconvenient. First one typically installs a three prong carbon steel hardware (bracket) to the wheel under the wheel lug nuts. Second, the hubcap is installed as normally done [but don’t install the center insert yet]. Third, insert the locking bolt thru the insert area and screw into the locking bracket [which has a fixed nut in its design]. Last, attach the insert to complete the task. Do the reverse to remove the hubcap. However, remember, this locking bolt (typically) requires a special wrench [not supplied] to tighten and loosen it. [Theft becomes more unlikely.] The challenge hence being access to such a special wrench and also keeping track of loose inserts and locking bolts during such efforts of simply changing a flat tire.
