Chrome lug covers

This should be an easy one but it seems not so for me. I have a couple of the chrome lug nut covers that are damaged and would like to replace same. I have tried several large truck parts/repair facilities here in the bay area with no results. I can find lots of covers but none that are an exact match for the originals. Have also tried on line with no results.
Anyone found an online source for these covers?

Hello Jerry:

When I had to replace some of my lug nut covers I found them at a NAPA truck parts house and also at T/A and Flying J truck stops.

As it happens I came up missing one of the lug nut covers back in Jan, so every time I fueled up at a Flying J, Pilot, T/A, or local truck shop, NAPA, etc, did not come up with the covers that were long enough (2.5"). 2 weeks ago stopped in at the Iowa 80 (I-80 exit 284) truck stop and found a lug nut cover that was 33mm & 3" L but nose is more pointed than original bull nose but it works. Item was UPC 10265, 0.89 ea.

I bought enough of a slightly different style to cover all the lugs on one wheel and now have a few spares for the other three. It also allowed me to ditch a few rusty ones.

Pride,

That's exactly what I was going to do as I seem to be able to find many local sources with similar shapes............just not quite the same.
