    you might want to add the wheel size or car make as Fiat's come in all shapes and sizes...

    I've never had to replace a hubcap, would have thought with the amount of alloy wheels on cars these days that a new set of hubcaps were a dime a dozen? All you need is the diameter of your wheel. It should be on your tyre. You'd never know a you might be lucky to find a match!

    If I recall correctly, there's a guy who sells 'used' hubcaps on Saturday morning in the Market.

    You could get lucky there.

    while on the subject of scrap yards in Limerick, i have a car which i will be scraping soon, its a 1999 rover 200 in perfect nick only the engine is low on compression, so do i have to pay to have it scrapped? or can i try to sell the car to the scrap yard? will they take it for nothing? thats the process exactly?

    Sorry meant Sweeney's, for some reason that's the second time I've called them Rowley's recently.

    If you know the exact type and size of wheel trim then try ebay.

    keep an eye on lidl.ie and aldi.ie, they have sets of hubcaps every few months, like a tenner for a set.

    sorry 13.99, found one of the ads from november


    http://www.aldi.ie/ie/html/offers/special_buys3_14940.htm

    May as well wait for the set at that price

    The Aldi ones are brilliant for replacing a set. A little brittle though. I'd nearly buy two sets and keep one in the shed. Also, check the guy in the market on Saturday as mentioned above.

    Just outside lazio's. I got a nice replacement toyota one there for a tenner. Plastic is way softer / less prone to cracking. Might be the same with the fiat ones.

    You could probably pick up a pack of generic new hubcaps in a motor factors pretty cheap
