Correct hub cap
Can someone tell me the correct measurement for the ribbed wheel cover
for a 1950 Commodore? I have the impression that the four that came with my car are incorrect. They stand proud of the center and are almost touching the air valve.

I've only ever seen one size in that style of hubcap. Hudson only used 15" wheels from 48-54. I believe those hubcaps were 50-53 (someone please correct me if I'm wrong), but they should fit all of the 15" Hudson wheels, except Jet. The 16" hubcaps have 7 ribs around the perimeter, so are easily identified, although they were never made with the symmetrical triangle like you have. I am suspicious of your wheels. I have never seen this issue with hubcaps before.
Maybe I should just go out and hit them harder. That always seemed to work on the kids.
Nope, that didn't work. It's about 12.75 inches across at the widest, in case anyone wants to compare. Thanks.
That’s the right cap for your car. Some of my valve stems touch the cap, on most of the Hudsons I have had over the years, never had an issue.
