What is a wheel trim?
A "wheel trim", "hub cap", or "wheel cover" is a circular disc, which is usually made from plastic and attaches to the side of a vehicle wheel.
What is the difference between a hub cap and a wheel trim?
A wheel trim is exactly the same as a hub cap. However, in the UK the term "hub cap" is used less frequently than it is in the US.
Is there more than one wheel trim that can fit my car?
Yes. Most wheel trims use a simple standardised clip on mechanism. They come in four sizes 13", 14", 15" and 16". It is likely there are thousands of wheel trims that can fit your car.
Why do wheel trims fall off?
The cause of a wheel trim falling off can often be due to a poor attachment to the wheel. Sometimes the force of a impact against something such as a curb can cause the wheel trim to come loose.
How can QuickHubs guarantee I receive the correct wheel trim replacement?
QuickHubs uses either the part number on the back of the wheel trim or your vehicle's unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to supply it's customers with the exact genuine hub cap they require. QuickHubs uses the most appropriate method of the two to identify the hub cap so there is never any doubt as to what the customer is getting.
Do QuickHubs supply genuine manufacturer originals?

How long can I expect to wait for my wheel trim?
If your wheel trim is from a common vehicle model it may take less than three working days. However, we advise all our customers that it may take up to five working days to source and dispatch your wheel trim.
Where will I find my part number?
QuickHubs supplies specific information tailored to your vehicle to help you find the part number. This is found in Step 2 when you search for your wheel trim. However, it is always on the back of the wheel trim and is usually near the manufacturer's logo. The number is often between 7 and 15 digits long and contains letters as well as digits. An example is 961130FA. This is the hub cap for a Ford Fiesta.
Where can I find my VIN and what is it?
The VIN is a 17 digit number which uniquely identifies your car from any other car anywhere else in the world. The digits can tell you where your car was built, the year it was made and can even help identify your hub cap. The location of your Vehicle Identification Number or VIN depends on your car's manufacturer. Renault's for example have them on the inside door, on the engine, and in the vehicle log book or service manual. Other cars have them near the driver's window on the passenger's side. Most, if not all, will have the number in the log book which is normally kept on the inside of the car in the glove box. You may also find the VIN printed at the back of the car on the rear window. If you need your Vehicle Identification Number, QuickHubs will navigate you to it as you go through Step 2.
When I enter my part number or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) into QuickHubs should I include hyphens or spaces?
QuickHubs uses an advanced algorithm so you can decide whether to include spaces or hyphens when you quote your part number in Step 2.
