I've talked to del about it he said to bend the clips around and try washers behind the clips. I'm actually trying to find out some info out on caps r there different sized 73-87 Style besides 3/4 ton

Re: Caps not fitting on delmo's

What do the clips for those wheels look like? It looks like they would be different than the clips used on other wheels. I have seen those caps on Delmo wheels on a few different trucks, and it appears that those caps don't actually sit in that groove on those either. They must have modified the clips somehow like Del suggested.

Re: Caps not fitting on delmo's

Thx that is helpful. That's kinda what I thought but I can never see the wheel pics clearly in dels ig pics. He did say the caps sat on top on brownstone. I think these wheels are really meant for 60-66 caps witch measure 10-1/2
