Will these hubcaps work on my wheels?

The husband is out of town for a few weeks so I'm trying to get a few things done on the old trailer before he gets back, which leaves me in the cosmetic realm of upgrades. I need to order new tires (I'll make that a separate post), but DH wanted to do something about these ugly wheels. They are 13" wheels, will these 13" "smoothies" work with that funky silver rim by the tire?

I have 13" smoothies on the Compact Jr And 14" smoothies on the Bigfoot. All from Hubcap Mike. Love them and no problems.

It depends. Your wheels have nub outties. If the hubcaps are designed for that style, they'll fit. However, there's also hub caps that are designed for nub innies. I'd call Hubcap Mike and ask which style these are. There's a toll-free number.

Like Donna says, we got some moons for our Boler from Hubcap Mikes and they worked out great. I emailed them a picture of my wheel and they let me know which ones would fit.

The "smoothies" that the OP asked about are wheel covers that span the entire width of the wheel. The only fitment challenge with them is clearance of the axle end. These are domed and clear with no problem. Hub caps that only cover the center of the wheel can be a greater problem due to different wheel shapes.

I don't know why I didn't even think of calling Hubcap Mike. He told me how to pop off the silver rings on the wheels and that's where the smoothies will fit in too. So hubcaps are ordered and I ordered new 3 new ST tires for the trailer.
I'm excited, we're getting even closer to taking our rig on our inaugural trip!
