I have 4 or the pictured hubcaps for 14" wheel. They do not fit my 15" wheels. Looking to buy or trade....any takers.

These that you have fit all 14 and 15 inch Stude. wheels from '58 to '66 with the "humps" on the wheel to secure them, except Scotsman. They are correct for 1963 Larks.

You need the '51 to '57 CAR type of hubcaps for the wheels with holes for the spring clips. A Truck or Scotsman Truck cap is the wrong diameter. Scotsman Cars were painted, the same Cap in Stainless was used on all others.

So I guess where you missunderstand is about the fact that the wheel size has nothing to do with hubcap fit, it is the mounting device that does.
