Wheel inserts '02 DS

I have the stainless wheel inserts on my 2002 DS. Are they a Newmar or a FL part. I need the big nut that holds the insert on. There is a adapter stud that screws onto the stud that holds the wheel on, then the insert goes on and this nut holds it on. Hope this is a good of enough discription,I should of took some PIC's when I had it all apart yesterday. Jim

They have plenty for 22.5s in the Versa line of simulators. If your's have a black center with a 6 pointed star, they are Dicors. The only other mfgr I can think of would be Wheel Masters.

The parts are called , stud extenders , you still have those, and jam nuts.
Trying to find the individual parts on the Dicor web site is an absolute .......joke . I have the same set up, F/L , 22.5" , 1 9/16" jam nut, and after trying to find a part number for you , for 15 mins, I just gave up. Give Dicor a phone call.
PS. After finding the names in the installation manual, I tried a search , and came up empty. They named the part and cant set up their system to find them.

I know what you mean about finding parts on Dicor's Web site. I guess I will call Newmar and see what they say. Jim

There was a time back during early 2000 DP's had no cover on the center of the wheel cover you were able to see the fluid level of axle without removing the hub cap.

Mine has the little cover that pops off to check the fluid level. Jim

Same with ours. When I changed over to the Alcoa wheels I used the old wheel simulator centers on both the front and rear axles. I did add some plastic door edge around the cover to fill up a small gap. Tried to use WheelMaster hub and nut covers (they're a local outfit for us) but they didn't have anything that fit very well or at a price I wanted to pay!

I am just presuming they are the same, but at our local Freightliner dealer, they have baskets full of "nut covers". You might check at YOUR FL dealer.

I do need a chrome nut cover too, but I need the big nut that holds on the wheel insert. Someone posted that it takes a 1 9/16 inch wrench, I know it is bigger than 1 1/2 as I tried that. Ended taking others off with big channel lock. Jim

I have the same configuration on my 03 KSDP. I got the parts directly from Newmar. They don't sell the large nut but they do sell a nut and chrome piece that screws on the stud and holds the simulator. I think I paid them 15.00 each for them. Hope this helps. Shipping was about the same price....

So, I got really frustrated on the Dicor site, got a drink, and decided ; there has to be a way to figure this out; and started clicking around.
So in order; click
Decorative Wheel Covers
Versa Liner Simulators
Then , Applications , in the bar beside Installation
On the chart scroll down to Freightliner Chassis ; 22.5" X 7.50 " 8lug 4 holes
In the left box click , The colored " V22508 " part number
that opens the parts available chart.
P/N - V22506-LNC $4.75 1 1/2" lug nut cover
P/N - V22506-RJN $ 10.50 Right hand thread Jam Nut
So after all that , part numbers.
BUT. Because the listing shows 1 1/2" lug nut cover .
Not the 1 9/16" (or 42mm.) that we need. seems you can't trust the listing. So I wouldn't be ordering online.

OK; I need to set the record straight. I trusted the size increments on the side of a crescent wrench ,when I stated the 1 9/16 size for the jam nut , surprise , wrong. Actual measurement 1 5/8 " or 41mm.
Sorry if I sent anyone looking for the wrong size socket.

When shopping for a socket take a sample, of what you want it to fit.
