If all the windows are up and the "Duane Eddy" tape is cranked...then it don't make no never mind.  However, the right rear cap is still irratatingly loose.  I also notice it when I'm polishing that chrome wheel and cap.  Is there a quick fix?

Loren,
Couldn't tell you, my friend.  Just lost one of my own hub caps, two days ago (was going to replace it anyway as was battered and beaten up).  I understand your annoyance, however.  Now I gotta get the bread together to get hubcaps (also beauty rings, as my beauty rings ain't so beautiful... plus I lost one of those as well).

Rotate the cap about, it may be stretched out-of shape and only fit tight in one spot.

Bend the edges of the cap inward slightly (banging with a block of wood should do it).

You want quick? Click the cap on with a scrap of matchbook cover at two of the bumps on the rim and then tear off the excess.

Ah-Ha....I will give those suggestions a shot this weekend.  Thanks Marc!
Daniel....sounds like you need to spruce  'er up slowly but surely.  Depending on how much moolah you can rat-hole for the little projects.  Shouldn't be all that hard unless there's a girlfriend and/or wife in the mix.

I'm glad I read this post. My left rear hub cap has a steady..."kah-ting, kah-ting, kah-ting" and it's driving me crazy. I'm going to do that fix in the spring, thanks Marc!

Success! I just gave that annoying cap a counter clockwise turn until I found a snug spot.  It tightened right up and the rattlin' noise is no more!
Thanks guys.
