71-72 GMC Sierra Grande 1500 Hubcaps

Hey guys quick question, are these the stock caps that would have came in a 71-72 GMC Sierra Grande 1500 ?

Are the steelies 15 or 16 inch ?

Re: 71-72 GMC Sierra Grande 1500 Hubcaps

I believe those would have been the upgraded PO3 caps (standard would have been painted), and I also think the centers (the concave circle that contains the "gmc") is supposed to be black. But, yes, correct caps for 69-72 1/2 ton truck that had the PO3 hub cap option. These may also be from 73+. Anyway, they are for 15" wheels (steelies) - confirm by measuring the diameter, should be 10.5" approx. IF (and I can't quite tell in the pic) they are 12"-ish, then they are for 3/4 ton 16" and 16.5" wheels.

Not unless they measure about 12" across the back from side to side

Do you guys have a link to what stock hubcaps looked like on 3/4 ton 72 GMC, or did they only run steelies no caps ?

Re: 71-72 GMC Sierra Grande 1500 Hubcaps

All 71/72 3/4 tons came with hubcaps,either painted or chrome. No wheelcovers. Those 1/2t caps you show work with any diameter rim with 5 or 6 lug pattern. The 3/4t caps look the same,but the contours vary slightly. The centers are convex and the caps are visually larger in diameter.

Re: 71-72 GMC Sierra Grande 1500 Hubcaps

big help hutch. so, frijolito, you could make it look like a 72 cap by painting the center black. but it will not fit your 3/4 ton 8 lug wheel, sorry.

Re: 71-72 GMC Sierra Grande 1500 Hubcaps

if you got 4 wheels AND caps for 120, you got a GREAT deal. Yes, 16.5" dia wheels were stock on 72 3/4 ton trucks. The caps you have would be the standard version.
