Best Place To Grub A Hub Phoenix 2002 - Hub-Cap City

Our friend parked at a high school football game in Mesa, then returned to his car to find his Jaguar stripped of its hubcaps. It seemed too easy that we might find the wayward caps at Hub-Cap City, itself a Mesa establishment. The grungy looking store is an endless array of gleaming chrome Frisbees, and the owner, after being pressed, nervously laughed that we didn't want to know where he got his inventory (he was kidding, really; a lot of his merchandise comes from manufacturer closeouts). No merchandise, he said, is accepted from high school students.

No Jags available today; turns out they're more precious than gold. But floor to ceiling is every other option, and priced at much, much less than a dealer. Crime doesn't pay, but when it happens, it's nice to know we can solve it for a few dollars less.

Have gone to Hub Cap City for years. But I stopped by on March 20 needing a couple new hub covers for my 1985 Firebird. I was disheartened to see the store closed and a for sale/for rent sign posted on the window. Anyone know if they moved or relocated and if so, where.
