I got a couple from Raney's recently. Included in the package was a package of push on clips that provide the "bite" on the rim when installing. Absent those biters, the cap would fit very loose, thus a good candidate for another loss if you hit a bump. Be sure you have the clips!

So far so good. After a year of pounding down Alaska roads they are still hanging on.

Just to muddy the waters a bit further, ours is an 'o6 Apex 40, and it also has the 4 slot hubs
I ordered from Raneys, now it's on and I have a spare. When ordering, you must also specify depth of the hubcap. I got caught flatfooted on that, so asked for 1"... and it turned out that it should have been 5/8", so I had to trim some of around the rim, but no big deal. And yes the clips need to be used. Thanks to all who replied.
