Does anybody know what this wheel cover is originally from? I found it along the side of the road, and it fits my 16" rims....there arent any symbols on it.

Looks like some cheap aftermarket replacement.

I do that all the time! It;s fun :p

Just curious, what alloy wheels do you have?

And it's definitely a cheap aftermarket. AFAIK, all OEM hubcaps have symbols on them.

2000-early 05 Taurus hubcaps have no logo on them....same with 2000-5 Sable hubcaps.

How is that cover held on?

Gen 4 factory plastic wheel covers are held on by the fake lugnuts, which thread onto the actual lug nuts. No clips on the circumference.

It has several "tabs" that stick out and hook into where the "holed" part of the rim connects to the tire portion.
