Standard 1200s had small "dog-dish" style caps. Other trims used full 12" wheel coverings. Remember that all B110s, and even PB110 used 12" Wheels -- so any 13" wheel covers you find are from some other car.

Type 154

Type 154 wheel cap is silver-painted (instead of chrome). It is also a different, plainer stamping than the H10 cover. Type 154 wheel cover was used by the poverty-pack 1200s: 2-door Sedan STD, Van STD and Truck STD. It was a carryover from the Datsun 1000 B20 truck.

Any 13" hubcaps are not from Datsun 1200, which even in GX form came with 12" wheels.
