I'm assuming that Cindy means hubcaps, so that's what I'm talking about. Our Uhaul has old Toyota hubcaps on it, I happened to have them in my collection, and they fit. I've seen one Uhaul that was for sale, and it had the original hubcaps on it, but they were rusted and dented. I've got to go through my hubcap collection and see if I have any vintage ones that will fit, as in full size shiny metal ones, not plastic like I'm using now. Hubcaps are low on my to do list, and since we are now on the road the list is on hold for awhile.

Ms. CindyL ,
Are the replacement rims you have the same shape as the the original rims but just missing the nubs which secured the hubcaps?

If so, maybe 3 accurately drilled holes for 3 s/s roundhead screws would allow you to use those RARE UHAUL baby moons

Hmm. I will direct hubby to this post. I believe that this is what he may have said was the issue. However, he painted the new rims and added fancy chrome lugnuts, so the new rims look nicer without the baby moons.

We found the hubcaps on ebay. They popup periodically there if you keep looking. I generally search every other day using both "Uhaul" and "U Haul." To get them, you may need to buy a single one and take the risk that a second one will appear. These, however, were a pair.

Yes, the little nubs are missing and I think the actual size of the opening is a bit different, too. I'll check this weekend.

Be careful Kevin and Cindy. The hubcap nappers are circling........

The rims fit and am heading home. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about getting new rims for your uhaul. The most important thing is the CT-13 rims are only available from a maintence facility as they have a different computer system and if they do not have them in stock they can search the stock of other facilities.

Thanks for this valuable information. This is a recurring question and this information will help others in the future.

Hubcapnappers would have a tough time. We can't find them right now. And I think we have two sets. I am sure we have at least 3, one for the spare.

If you saw our collection, you would understand why we can't find them.

Cindy, I'll bet my collection of stuff is bigger, visualize a barn 50X100 full!! I have stuff I know I have but can't find, and other stuff I forgot I had. Tried to get on the Pickers show, but it didn't work out.

I wish we had a barn. Then we might have room to spread out the stuff and could find things. And have room to work on the classic vehicles.

I thought everyone had a barn!! Mine needs cleaning out and organizing, plus I have a smaller one that used to be a milk house but is now my shop, and that needs to be straightened up too. It will have to wait until spring, because right now I'm a "Winter Guest" at a campground by the beach in Georgia. That's their term for "Yankee Snowbird".

What is kind of funny is that when we had a small barn on our house lot in WI, we didn't have as much stuff. We obviously did this all backwards.

Ms. CindyL and Mr. Bob,
Too much stuff in my stash too! When I buy something I need and then later find out that I already owned one, bought years ago, that concerns me...
I'm been trying to beat the " no matter how big the storage the faster it fills up" syndrome...
