I get that part just fine, which is why I was suggesting hubcaps that have appeared in other AMT kits.  They've done a few 1950s vintage cars over the years that came with stock hubcaps.

Only if the stock wheel covers/hubcaps you desire are on their own, dedicated runners, could it be done . These new wheel sets are in effect all-new mini molds, with their own separate runners surrounding all four wheels, and not an insert nor an integral part of a larger mold base.

Below are the new parts which Round2 created for the mot recent reissue of the (now-ex) Lindberg Dodge 330 Sedan kit, showing how the dog dish hubcaps and steel wheels are paired together, as are the chrome "mag" wheels and wheel backs. The wheels sets would be easy to separated from the runners by cutting the fan gates, making them viable as a separate parts pack offering:
