Interesting - I had a set of caps on a truck and when I pulled front drivers it was a soup can. Fit pretty well. See bottom right of picture.

The suppliers list a dust cap for the hub for the model A. I used this cap on my 28 AA and it fits under the hub cap just fine.

Can someone with wire spoke wheels measure and post the diameter opening in the wheel for the hubcap? Curious as to what I can find to snap in there.
