Will smoothies work?

I have a 2017 13 scamp with the stock wheels and the EZlube hubs. Will full smoothie wheel covers fit over the EZlube?
Im looking to purchase the covers from

According to Mikes, they wont work. Any ideas for full wheel covers that do work? The open wheels are crying for something to cover them.

After looking at your link to Mike's I'm not sure why they would not fit. Granted they would tear up the powder coat on the wheels and start rust, but the way the center bulges it looks like it would stick out way past the hub. (remove the wheel and any center cap you now have and reinstall the wheel.

New Alloy wheels? Sendel is top of the line, the T02 design is very popular, and is $90 on Amazon, plus center cap if needed, and the cost of swapping tires, and balancing. Good time to get new tires if you are close. Its a shame, Goodyear does not make the endurance in 13 inch, but the Carlisle Radial Trail HD is a good tire, or depending on how much room you have, a 14 inch wheel might be a way to go.

Mikes reply was if the EZ lube sticks out past the outermost lip of the rim, the smoothies wont secure.

I like your option of new wheels, but Im looking (hoping) to give a some age to the trailer with a retro look.

Yes I plan on new D class tires with whatever option I end up doing. From what I read, 14 rims will not fit without modifications, so I really want to stay with 13s.

Bob I bought BHC01-13. A straight line across the cap installed, shows about 3/4 in. proud across the sidewall face of the tire. Measure across your EZlube.

Here are the wheel covers I decided on. These cover EZ lube hubs.

Hey Bob,
Could you be more specific as to which item you are referring to, I don't seem to find them for 13 in wheels in that site for Walmart. The smallest I find are for 14 in wheels.

For some reason, when I try to reply with a link, or pic, the post will disappear.

I’m using full wheel covers from a 1965 Dodge Dart.

You can post photos, but not links until you have 10 posts. It is a safety against spam.
