I was watching a recording on the History channel
Volo house of cars
it was a show that only ran a few weeks back around October, I put a brass hubcap in here last week and trying to see what this was for and it looks like the one very close to the Disney trick car they just purchased, can anyone identify this wheel?

Buffalo wheels. Like Pharis now makes.

Is this the right hub cap early version?

Bob,

The caps on the Buffalos actually hold the wheels on, if I'm not mistaken. I don't believe the one you've pictured would be up to that task. I'll let the forum wire wheel gurus decide however.

Jerry's correct- those front wheels are #3 Buffalo. Flat base, probably 18 or 19" from the looks of them. They look too small for 20s or 21s.
