W-e-e-e-e-ll, (a caveat to say 'I don't really know!) as the wheels are the same (apart from the number of holes stamped out), and if there is a central spider with central nut, then in theory any single centrally bolted hub cap should fit any wheel.

Thanks - looking at the parts list, I thought that might be the case. So it would be just a matter of collecting the necessary parts.
I wonder if the chrome ones would look ok with the plastic bumpers...

The GSA Pallas had full cover stainless hub caps, slightly different to the GS Pallas.
