Front hub cap

If you are like me, you have lost at least 1 front hub cap. I found them on Amazon, Grand General part number, GC# 10513. It is described as chrome, front hub cap, 7/16" lip, 4 notches, $5.49 each!

Don't both with the chrome ones.. For a little more you can get one made of stainless steel. Same goes for the wheel nut covers. Truck accessary parts in truck stops should find you what you need.

I have checked over a dozen Flying J's and TA's across the country sand all I find is the chrome and no 4 slots and the ones I find are priced at $10.

I bought SS nut covers and SS hub covers on Ebay. I have seen them in truck centers though.

Stainless Steel!

FWIW ...

Ditto on purchasing stainless steel lug nut covers. I replaced my old rusty lug nut covers with new chrome covers resulting in those rusting in a relatively short time period. I have since purchased stainless steel covers from Pilot which are holding up nicely. I believe I paid around $20 which 1s only slightly more than Raney's but very convenient.

Interestingly, I had lost both front hub caps & purchased new chrome ones which have held up nicely for a long time. The ones I purchased had 5 - tabs which proved difficult to "pound" on but are definitely NOT coming loose! I noticed that the Raney product is 4 - tabs which should be easier to mount. Just remember - if it's easy to go ON then it's easy to come OFF (while driving!?).
