    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    Ok, I will bite, are you talking about the metal doo hickey that locks a dog dish hub cap on? On pontiacs these are not removeable (at least the ones on my GTO are not) and are not sold as a seperate part.

    Dare I ask what year, make, and model GM?

    That adds up. I used to have a couple in my collection of found hubcaps as a kid in the 1980s.

    I think they're called "hubcaps," but I couldn't be certain.

    Hmmmm I though the hub cap was the thing the locking screw held onto this part. You accessed the locking screw by prying off the actual hubcaps center cover.

    The anti theft key had a screwdriver like blade used for the purpose.

    I have the hubcaps, key and locking screw for a caddy. Without this part whose name escapes me, I cannot lock the caps unless I fab some.

    Completely unrelated but possibly interesting to some, an xr hd and vw both seal their head surfaces the same way. Just most people used a copper ring on the vws.

    HAckA,
    Have you picked out a racebike yet for Mid-Ohio? I have been thinking that Brit 500 twin would be fun. Do you have one? It doesn't need any hubcaps, GM or otherwise.

    This little guy?



    It was simply just called the mounting bracket. The one in the picture is from an 80's buick. for the buicks you have the wheel covers (hubcaps), Locking Key (wrench), locking nut, and the mounting bracket.
    Did you hear about the pirate with two wooden legs?

    After some searching it looks like Cadillac calls them wheel centers
