What hub caps would fit on this rim


Recommended Posts

I got a set of these way back they have been inside for years . I want to know if what datsun caps may fit or is there a moon or dog dish type that will fit. Seems the size is 15x6. I'll have to paint them and such. It seems I've seen some used on other 510s.

Any FULL DIAMETER hub cap for a 14in steel wheel will fit, just like the 240Z-280Z, which is what that wheel looks like.

 

You can not fit a small diameter "dog dish" hub cap, as there are no tabs for it to snap over. 

 

FYI look for a stamped "date code" on the FRONT lip (check all four!!), between the hub center with the slots & the outer hoop.  The 1970 240Z "Series 1" steelies are worth $200-300 to the guy that needs a particular date code!  Those would all have a 1969 or 1970 date code.  Later 1971-1978 simply aren't in demand like the early ones.

drive to your local "hub cap willie" or whatever your2nd hand local hub cap/wheel goes by and ask if you can test fit a couple.

Full diameter hubcaps can be pretty universal. 

Dog-dish style require the little knobs outside the lug circle.

The good thing is that you have the anti-rotation tabs welded to the rim.  They  will retard the tendency for the full wheel caps from spinning on acceleration and possibly shearing off the valve stem.
