Want to buy (and question): Dino Coupe 2400 hub caps

Postby Luis A » Fri Dec 15, 2017 3:04 am

Hi guys,

My 2400 coupe has the wheel covers/hub caps sold by Superformance which are shaped like the Ferrari Dino ones like this:

I am looking for originals like this: (but without so many bumps and dings, for me to refinish):

My question is, are the 2000 coupe hub caps different than the 2400 coupe hubcaps? Superformance sells repros (pictured below) for the 2000 that look very similar to the original 2400 ones. Are they really that similar? Would they fit the 2400 wheels? Thanks in advance for any replies!

I’ll answer my own question! Emailed Superformance and they replied that the 2000 hubcaps they show do not fit the 2400... they really look similar; they must be different in size...

Did not expect that. I'm sure they pass by every now and then on ebay, though often for an insane price.

In case you manage to source an incomplete set, I think we still have two of the 2400 coupe caps in the garage somewhere. Btw the ones you have shows the bolts, right (picture is not showing for me)? As we still need one 2400 Spider hubcap, to replace the coupe version ;)

OK, I fixed the photo links (Google photos is a PITA when it comes to this). Scalino, you can now see the ones my car has are not the ones that show the bolts but the other Ferrari Dino style that is flat with the raised edge around it. Please send me a PM here so we can connect on email and see pictures of the ones you have... Thanks,

Then a German outfit sells these, which look close to correct but strangely they have placed a FIAT logo in the center that does not correspond to 2400 or 2000. I've emailed them asking if the center comes off.

Hi Luis and Scalino,

Fiat Dino 2000 Coupé, Fiat Dino 2400 Coupé and Fiat Dino Spider came with three different types of hub caps.

Fiat Dino 2000 Coupé came with complete stainless steel caps. Correct FIAT spare parts number 4150253. This cap is being offered by both Dino Parts and Superformance. I assume that these are reproductions.

Fiat Dino 2400 Coupé came with stainless steel caps with black painting. Correct FIAT spare parts number4216665. It’s the cap on the right on the photo below.

Both Fiat Dino Spider 2000 (with bolt on rims / wheels) and Spider 2400 came with all stainless steel caps. It’s the cap on the left on the photo below. The correct FIAT Spare parts number is 4218680. Superformance offers this cap, I assume it’s a reproductions.

All these caps will fit the FIAT Dino Cromodora 6.5x14 rims and are interchangeable. Hope this helps.
Georg

Thank you Georg. Do you think the 2400 coupe hubcap you show in your photo is the same size (it looks to be!) as the 2000 shown on Superformance's site, except the correct 2400 is black (as shown in your photo) and the 2000 hub cap is not painted, polished steel? Superformance say they do not fit the 2400. Do you know how exactly they are different (besides black paint) than the 2400? Thanks, Luis

Hi,
Over the past 35 years I have owned several examples of each of the 4 variants of fiat Dino. Of the 3 series that regularly use bolt on hubs, I have never found that the various types of hub cap will not fit. I would be very surprised if the parts offered by superformance did not fit 2000 coupe, 2400 coupe, 2400 spider. I am aware of the few 2000 spiders that were produced with bolt on wheels, and I'd feel these hub caps would fit all bolt on wheels.
Hope this helps. My understanding is that if a part purchased from superformance was not suitable, then if returned in good order would be refunded. As previous correspondents have referred they occasionally come up on auction sites, and other Dino specialists offer them too. In summary, I'm certain they'll fit your car.
Regards, Brian Boxall

Hi Brian, Thanks for your reply. Of course, that is the answer I was hoping to get :-) ...but coming from someone with your experience with these cars I can weigh it accordingly. It will be a few months before I can confirm this but once I do I will post the resolution. Thanks all, Luis
