Hi guys, I'm looking for some input as to what hubcaps I should throw on my 1992 Ranger, I have some chrome center caps, but I'd like something that better compliments the classic look of the vehicle. Let me know what you guys think would look best!

If it ain't broke, break it.

I don't count birthday's anymore...just happy to be looking down at the ground instead of looking up
Unfortunately they have not made a steel wheel that will accept "moons" for years. Loved moons back in the day, along with chrome trim rings. Aftermarket maybe, but those are just as expensive as alloy's.

Where there's a will, there's a way. They're the only acceptable choice for a black steel wheel.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
@racsan had some period correct hub caps for his. That would give you an idea of the style. I noticed a set on a Ranger while I was driving around the countryside this week.

I did some searching around, and found these. Many ford truck models from the later 80s-early 90s came with these. I got this set of 4 off of Facebook marketplace for $100. With some cleaning they'll be good as new!
