    Why do you need five? A set is four and the spare does not use a wheelcover. Do you just want to have an extra?

    Also it was only a limited number of early '53's that used any Tri-stars anywhere, the rest used the late '53,'54,'55 type.
    All of the Vernon built 1953s carried the tri-star trim through the entire model year.

    Since the original dies were destroyed for the Reproduction '54-'55 Wheelcovers and the supply is gone, the rarety, price and demand has gone through the roof.

    A near perfect one or NOS one, could cost $150.00-$200.00

    Nice 54 -55 full wheel covers can be bought on ebay regulary, at a reasonable price. It's the 53's that are hard. I have a driver set of 54's

    I bought four of my five from Greg Houston at Hubcaps Always in Illinois(?). They only needed a repaint of gold in the centers. Be aware you probably won't find them for less than quite a bit of money.
