Cadillac Sombrero style hubcaps manufactured by Hollywood Wheel Disc Shop in Los Angeles, California. According to an ad printed in an Eastern Auto Supply catalog from 1949 for the discs the hubcap was copied from a 1949 Cadillac hubcap, and custom made to fit all late model cars. They were made from highest quality chrome plating, had perfect fit, and could be installed like an ordinary hubcap. The hubcaps were sold in set of 4, and included individualized metal emblems for each make of car. In 1949 a set of 4 discs cost $16.95 if you exchanged the with your old hub caps, and $18.95 if you were just buying a set.
