Have had rally caps for years on a Monte Carlo and now on my 63 Chevy II. Never lost a cap.

Standard rally caps are held by three bumps on the rim. Stock wheels have two bumps close together and one across. Aftermarket wheels are many times evenly spaced. Lay the cap in the two close bumps and hit the cap on the other side to seat on the opposite one bump. Just banging the cap on does not work well.

I have an older set of Rally wheels . . . on my 69 car . So my "Center Caps" look like they
" Could Fall Off " , going down th' road . So , I did take & "Screwed my Center Caps = = On" .
All 4 rims & Caps ............................. but , then , I did "number & mark them" , for each rim . Then I
just used some "short 'pan head' type screws" .
I have some pictures - - - - - but , their BIG .
