Unfortunately I had to return the hubcaps because the logo on the caps was not recessed like the originals. However, the process working with Eric was fantastic. Great communications and in my opinion the best customer service in the entire spare parts industry. This project is still in process and will be purchasing from Lane Russell in the future.
Best looking reproductions I've seen or had, but the chrome is not as nice as the originals. One cap had a small dent on it when it arrived from shipping, Lane Russell replaced it with a new one immediately. They had great communication and fast shipping, I will be buying from them again.
After ordering hubcaps for the wrong model, I re ordered and received a set of excellent quality caps for my 68. Great service from Eric.
These are good quality replacements!
66 VW Beetle Hub Caps are extremely rare. I have searched pretty much the entire globe and all I could find was the Brazilian made cheap knock off "WANNA BE" hub caps. These are the kind you can stand by and watch them rust. Thin, poorest chrome I have ever seen with the "VW" Emblem which looks like it was "melted" in. So then I found an old run down Garage in Florida which had "Original" VW Hub Caps in the upstairs storage and bought 8 of what I considered to be the best "seconds" I could find. Although these are Original VW Hub Caps and look pretty good they still show their age and will never be what I consider "Show Quality" I have spent 5 years restoring 66LDYBUG and I want her to be "perfect" and perhaps even win some rewards.
I just happened to be looking for a Carburetor and Fuel Pump to finish off the "1300" and stumbled across Lane Russell's hub caps.
Well, I just received them gently and properly packaged and when I opened the box my Wife and I could not believe what we saw.
I am showing them off to my neighbours and friends and would like to say that if anyone is as passionate about their VW and doesn't what to install "junk" then this is the place to buy them.
Fantastic, Solid, excellent material mil specifications, Mirror finish Chrome better than the original one's I picked up in Florida.
In my opinion Lane Russell's quality is the best you are going to find anywhere (and I have shopped) and that goes for the Carburetor, Fuel Pump and pretty sure for everything else.
Because I am so impressed with the quality I will be looking to Lane Russell for my new Interior, which I know will be a challenge all on it's own.
I have only one regret and that is that I didn't find "Lane Russell" 5 years ago.
