Hello again guys, I have a 95 2wd and I would like to find some center caps for it . I don't know these are the original wheels or not. I know that they do not have the 3 screw holes for certain caps. I don't know which caps to get for it. I think the wheel number is #3184. Help me figure out which ones will fit. They are 14s

I like cookies.
Those are factory Ford wheels commonly called "deer hoof" wheels. Ford stopped using the center caps that screw in to the three holes after the '94 model year. In '95 they starting using center caps that are a little more rounded and pop on to the lug nuts.
I would go junkyard hunting if I were you. I have seen aftermarket reproductions for crazy amounts of cash. You could almost buy a new set of aftermarket wheels with center caps.

You need the special gold colored lugnuts and the weird bubble looking center caps that snap onto the golden lugnuts

Thanks for the help guys. What is the name of those special lug nuts? I was sorta wanting to find the caps like the picture that I am posting. So, I assume that I wont be able to use these because mine do not have the 3 screw holes?

Unless you want to drill the holes yourself. Then run some self Tapp screws in there to hold them down
Or you could use those plastic drywall anchors and just cut the to fit. Don't know how handy you are, but anything can be done, and those would be unique if you did it.

I love those classic Ford caps with the split red centers. I picked up a set and plan on drilling my steel 15x7s to make them work, but in the meantime I actually found a set of the appliqués on ebay and put those in the centers of my stock caps. I like the look. Note - you'll need special "collared" lug nuts to run the snap-on type center caps.

Bare in mind, the holes for the screws were not just into the rims. There was a large hole in the rims that a little bracket popped into, that the screw went into. I don’t know why Ford did it that way. Maybe if you put the screw directly into the rim, it’ll seize??

early Taurus' did that too. using that plastic insert seems to work quite well.
