has anyone fitted the old dog dish hub caps to a modern steel wheel????

quite fancy going to steelies  if this can be done....

15" pickarse wheels and possibly Moggie 1000 caps

Hasn't Johnny Smith done that on his Allegro project? I would think the clips off something like a pre-68 VW wheel would work as they rivet on rather than the cap clipping over part of the wheel itself

The only modern car I’ve seen with dog dishes was the ‘New Beetle Mk2’, or however VW defined the one they launched around about 2013. I don’t expect VW added lugs to the steel wheels in the old school way, so it be worth having a look at one to see how it works.  

I would add that it may be a clever full wheel trim with body colour bits to make it look like the old ones - never seen one up close.
