Fraser,

Do you have the long stub axles on yours?

I do have a supplier but getting them is a bit of a problem at the moment. He's having trouble producing good quality end products.

Incidentally, If you have the short stub axles normal Mini/Reliant ones will fit.

Hello Mathew,

Thanks for your swift reply, I presume mine are the short stub as they don't stick out much however the hubcaps have a very deep dish on them.

I have two wheels with three circular nipples, for want of a better word, on them to hold the hubcaps on.

On the subject of wheels is it early mini wheels that fit our vans?

Regards, Fraser.

Fraser,

Can you post a picture of your cap on here and i'll compare it to the ones I've had made.

We have covered some of this before and to save myself from plagiarizing what other people have told me, i'll direct you to the other posting first:

I have just bought some hubcaps of Ebay for my Portafold which has one mini wheel and one Portafold wheel and they fit a treat. They are item number 110635646755 if anybody is after some.
