Tough question. "Good price" for the buyer or the seller? If the buyer TRULY needs them, they have more value. Of course if shipping needs to be factored in, value would drop. The real answer is whatever the market will bear. Perhaps e bay could answer that q better. I bought the same hub caps in OK condition same size for 100 @ a Corvair convention a few years ago. This was after looking at them for a few days in the swap meet area.

Do you mean 5 x 4 3/4" lug pattern, not 5 x 4 1/2"? Also what is the back space?

I ended up buying my 14" FC wheels one at a time. I paid between $60 to $80 each for them. All four required cleaning up and painting.

Hope that helps.

I measured again and the lug pattern is 5 x 4 1/2. The back space is 3 1/2. These came off a 1962 Corvair Van and are original wheels that I replaced with s S10 wheels. Now I'm confuseddrinking smiley.
