Are your old 307 plastic hubcaps a bit sloppy on the rim......

Thinking that the next Barry Unsworth pothole discovery will cause the cap to part company with the wheel????

Well I have a solution...of sorts....
Cut down a milk carton into pieces that will fit under the tabs, between the metal wire ring and the push out "gripper" on the hubcap, (note that a notch is required to go around the retainer tab and if you make it the right length it will self-support in the recess of the plastic moulding).

I did two.... opposite each other .... and the firm grip was restored...The slacker the grip the more tab shims needed...install them symmetrically and all should be well.

Photos to follow.....
