The wheel itself doesn't matter, the caps go on the hub of the car, which can vary by make.

Comp cars and S/Cs had no rear caps, as there was nothing to "protect" (i.e. bearing underneath). As stated above, most street cars were fitting with them to look more finished.

I like the look of no caps on the rear, but then again I also like the comp look.

...and they're a little more complicated than just a press-fit chunk 'o metal. Getting them from ERA is definately the way to go.

Default Caps

Front only, be it SC, Comp cars, or street cars.

The cap is a "dust shield/cap"

The rears don't have bearings that need to be protected.
