Default Wheel Covers?

i am not sure of the correct term for the "baby moon" style covers for the rear wheels. However, I need to replace 2 of them. I picked up the correct size at a chrome shop. How the heck do I get them to go on without pounding them into a different shape? I tried heating one of them until it was too hot to hold without gloves and I still could not get it on.
There must be a secret that I am missing.
Any suggestions?

IF I understand what you are trying to do. I put baby moons on both the drive and tag. The drive fit fine. The tags have the Stempco covers...i used a grinder to remove some of outward points on the hex bolts until the moons would snap on.

If you are talking about the caps for the top hats, they come in two very similar sizes. I believe the one you need is 8 3/4" instead of 8"

If it’s the front wheel you may have to remove a retaining tab on the baby moon to get it on.
