Which hubcaps are you talking about? Please rephrase this question!
I went to buy new hubcaps for my car.
Hubcaps can be replaced with the ease of yourself doing it. A good place to find hubcaps can be at Wal-Mart, target, or Costco. I seen a large variety of selections through these stores.
more than likely, its the front tires if a front wheel drive.
To be honest i think that is not a bad idea. but if ur painting your hubcaps then make sure you check ur car`s colour so the end result is matching.
A car wheel is attached to an axle. If the car is RWD, the rear wheel axle will be connected to the engine and the front wheels not be. In a 4WD or FWD car the front axle, with a ball joint to allow steering, will also be connected to the engine via a torque tube and a geared differential.
Unless a brake is engaged, the wheels on a car in neutral can rotate backwards. If the car is in gear, wheels attached to the power train probably will only rotate backwards if the car is in reverse gear. If it is in forward gear or "park" they should not rotate backwards. Wheels not connected to the power train should be able to rotate either direction.

I've never owned a vehicle where you could not rotate wheels from the front to the back whether it was a car or truck. I'm not saying that there are no vehicles where you can not rotate front to back, but I've never owned one. It would be more common the have tires that are unidirectional that can not be rotated from left to right and vice versa.
a car will rotate forwards because of the initial forward thrust, forcing the car to flip forward over the cliff.
Tires should be rotated every 7500 miles for good even tire wear and tire life. Remeber only rotate tires front to back on the same side of the car....no cross rotations. Example: right front goes to right rear..... left front tire goes to left rear and vice versus.
No - replace the rim. Go to a salvage yard and take one off a wreck.
