Those are pretty rare. I had a stack of one-piece stainless
trims covering the full wheel and held by the same kind of
nut with a flange and spring, but shiny as they were on
view. If you can’t find what you need, your wheels are
probably suited to a set of these which are almost giveaway
in the UK if you ask a few breakers.

Tony it’s a bit hard to tell from your photo, but the hubcap looks
like the hubcap fitted to the series 1 and 2 cars with chrome turbo
wheels. These hubcaps look the same as the hubcap fitted to the 240
and 340 models, but is smaller in diameter. I don’t know for sure
when turbo wheels were introduced? certainly by 1972, but maybe not
at the start of XJ production.–

Hi Nev…its different to the S1/2 Chrome wheel hubcap.

‘‘almost’’ same diameter, but flatter

wont quite mount on that wheel, with the 3 pegs that hold
the hubcap

thats what type I have on as a spare atm.

the 3 x S1 or 2 plain steel wheels I have atm take the
larger cap I think, but accomodate my SS dress rings, unlike
the 3 pegged chrome ones…confusing I know

(I also stove a plain steel wheel in on the same day!)

It sure was a mongrel searching the roadside bushes for that
cap…

I will try and put up some better pics–

The turbo wheels, chrome or painted, came in with the
Series 2 E-type in about 68 and the V12 had them from 71
so I guess with the S2 sedan around the same time? The hub
caps are different to the ones shown for sure.

Lots of people dump the Turbos on E-types to fit spoked.
If all else fails a decent set of turbos should be
obtInable although they are expensive new. I still think
the UK 3.4 S3 style stainless trims might be usable and
would be by far the cheapest solution.
