Hubba Hubba Caps – LoPresti Speed Merchants

Much to my surprise, I actually heard back from a note I sent to David LoPresti, via a response received from Jim Shafer. I was inquiring about the Hubba Hubba six-inch molded wheel covers.These are the molded caps with the air valve access door, which LoPresti used to sell for 6″ Cleveland wheels. Roy LoPresti had added our aircraft to their STC list at my request, some years ago, and a few of our members bought some a couple of years back.

I had not seen the caps listed for sale in some time, and asked about them. Apparently they are bringing out a second generation version. I have not been able to get more details yet, on what might differ between Gen 1 and Gen 2.

LoPresti has offered BAC members a one-time 25% discount on orders for sets of two or sets of three caps. Complete text follows:


Hello Michael,

David LoPresti asked me to follow-up with you regarding a special discount for Beech Aero Club members:

We can offer your members a special, limited time, one-time only discount of 25% off the normal purchase price of $159.00 per pair, making their cost $119.25 plus $7.99 shipping per pair, or $178.88 plus $7.99 shipping, for a set of three 6” Hubba Hubba Caps. We will honor this price effective immediately for any BAC member who places an order with us before July 4, 2007.

We will take orders at these prices and ship the new and improved version of our Hubba Hubba Caps as soon as they become available, which is currently scheduled to be in the early to mid-July timeframe.

We do not currently offer a 5” version of the Hubba Caps, but I will let you know if that changes.

Thanks for your interest in our products, Michael. I look forward to working with you on this project. Please contact me if we can be of further assistance.

All the Best!
