These are all aftermarket accessories - mostly 60's and 70's era. The bikini type will still fit most newer rims of the respective size - be it 12, 13, 14, 15 or 16 inch. The othes that are held in place by the hubcap are very much rim dependant as the hubcap size and offsets vary from rim to rim.

I had stacks of them at one stage , but now not too many left. Very popular sale item at the swop meets.

I don't think any are OEM, all aftermarket but good replicas. Here are my guesses
