Thanks Jim.

That looks like a push-though hub cover or cap, unusual only because it has a plated plastic centre cap (which is useful if you can take it out for access to the E-Z Lube hub). The wheel is aluminum alloy.

Given that the wheel nuts are centred on a 4.5" diameter circle, the centre bore (or pilot hole) appears to be about 3.5" in diameter... but you need a more precise value.

Harley, these may be what you're looking for:

Amazon.com: 3.19 in Stainless Steel Open End Center Cap for Trailer Rims #106EZSS: Automotive

The company who sells them on Amazon is called Silver Moon Trailers. Here's their storefront as well:

If it's not the exact size, they have lots of others in their storefront. One is bound to fit.

Thanks, I think that is the one, $8 each plus $9 shipping, yikes, well it could have been worse. Now I have to see if I can remove my wheel.

Does anyone know the diameter of the spare tire Escape uses? I want to buy a custom spare cover for our 21.

15"- same as the others. What's going on it? Dizzie or maybe LSU Crusader logo?

Wouldn't 15" be the diameter of the wheel?
Just had to know so I measured my spare ( 15 inch ) and diameter of wheel and tire is about 27 or 28 inches. It is dark and I had to hold the tape and the flashlight, so that's the best I can do.

The spare should be the same as the tires that are on the axles. A 21' uses the same tire as most recent Escapes, which is a ST205/75R15; although as I recall some trailers have come with different sizes, I don't think the 21' has had other sizes. It's easy enough to read the side of the tire and see what it is, anyway.

I agree that for cover clearance you need to know the overall diameter. The easiest source of this information is published specs, and I find TireRack.com the easiest source of specs. Overall diameter doesn't vary much by brand (within the same size designation), and a Goodyear Marathon ST205/75R15 has an overall diameter of 27.1"... just as Baglo measured.

A cover has a width limit as well, and the "205" is the nominal section width of the tire in millimetres. That's about 8 inches, as the specs show.

I would assume that a smaller tire is unlikely to be used on the trailer in the future, but it might be good to be able to accommodate a slightly larger tire just in case. The next common ST tire size up is ST225/75R15 (28.3" overall diameter).

I have the aluminium option for all five wheels on our 21' and was disappointed when I discovered that the spare didn't come with the center cover. I guess you are supposed to remove it from the flat and put it on the spare when you change tires. I didn't know how to do it when I discovered a flat while camping at Lake Louise and took the tire down to Canmore to be repaired. The dealer showed me how you simply give the hub cover a smack and it will pop loose out the back. When I get a little more ambition I will have to take off the replacement spare to put the hub on so all four wheels once again match.
