2 hubcaps fell off my bosses AU falcon and I got the task of going to replace them.
Turns out no one makes 16'' and the only ones available are genuine fords for $220.
Anyone have any 16" caps they want to sell?
Either that or i'll buy him some 2nd hand alloys rims for a little more than that.

Ford changed to 16" steelies in AUII, so if it was an AUI it'd be 15"'s still. Now that you've said that I've never seen 16" hubcaps for sale, only 13", 14" and 15".

Yeah it's not a problem, 0431520274 it's quite pointless for me to have them as there gathering dust.
