Commonly known as a "dog dish." Needs to be absolutely without blemish to be worth much. One afternoon, I removed the emblems from a stack of dented caps and trashed the caps.

Some folks like these and a trim ring rather than the deluxe full wheel cover to get the full effect of the painted wheels. Good to hang on the garage wall.

This is a "hub cap". The bigger one is a "wheel cover."
