Here's what one (very famous) person thought about "hub caps" on his cars. At a point in time when the details of the 1967 Shelby Mustangs were being finalized, Carroll Shelby was in Europe. Some bean counter back at Shelby American in Los Angeles thought it would be a great idea to offer hub caps on the cars that carried Shelby's name. When Carroll returned from Europe and learned of this development, he found the employee responsible for that decision and fired him on the spot. Of course, as irony would have it, the following year Shelby Mustang production was moved from Los Angeles to the A.O. Smith plant in Michigan, and ALL the 1968 Shelbys came off the line with hub caps. Ford was running the show at that point, and Carroll had little say in what was offered on "his" cars.
