It would have had plastic push nuts. Likely like the ones on the left in this picture:

PM me if you can't find any locally, I have a stash of the ones in the picture on the right side.

Is the wheel loose on the axle?  Looks like you might be missing a shim in there.

P.S. We're going to need to see the rest of that grill.
Wanted: Green SJG (will trade Copper SJG)

Yes I agree that the early push nuts are the ones on the left side With all those tiny rings. My Pat. Pending kettle also has them. My 1989 also has them but my 1991 does not have this style anymore.

I was lucky to find a few sets of NOS push nuts at my local Ace Hardware Weber dealer. 
  Try your local Ace Hardware, they should carry the push nuts in the nut/bolt area. They will have the ones pictured on the right in Black, Red, or White.  Three different locations near me carry them for $1 each.

It's loose on the axle, both sides. What's the best paint use for the interior white walls of the wheel?
