Lug nut cover

A boulder jumped out at me when I was exiting an RV park and, among other things, ripped off one of the lug nut covers on the right front wheel. I've been to a couple of places that had lug nut covers, but none to match the ones on our wheels. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement? I figure I probably have to buy a whole set, but at least I'll have spares and can maybe help out other "victims".

I hate that when that happens, I think I would try Freightliner they might have them. I lost a wheel cover on a front wheel and they had the replacement that fit.

Try the crome shops at any number of Truck Stops [TA, Flying J, etc]. They go for about $9.00 each--make sure you get the 4 tab [number of clips that hold it to the wheel hub] and not the 6 tab version. Also check to see how the hub/oil reservoirs are doing. The red plug [larger size] can deform over time and leak--just unplug and replace.

The reservoir cover gasket can also leak--requires removing all six bolts to replace gasket--gets a bit messy as 80w-90 oil [less than a pint] will run out requiring replacement. Red plugs and cover gaskets are about $5.00 each at TA.

OOPS--just realized you are talking about the lug nut covers and not the hub cover [baby moon]. Same sources--they usually have them in a bin--problem is finding an exact match so you may have to buy a set .....

Jerry,

I've found a close match at the T/A Travel Center in Denton, TX. Perhaps, other T/A Travel Centers also have them. Since these are not an exact match, I then stole the correct ones from the rear wheels to put on the front wheels and replaced the then missing ones on the rear wheels. The almost-match on the rear wheels is not at all noticeable.

I'm lucky, WheelMaster is just on the other side of town (as is RoadMaster which owns WheelMaster) when I needed new hub caps and lug covers I just drove the MH over. The young lady at the desk put on an apron and found what I needed. But they had no covers for the rear nuts as the studs are too long for anything they had.
I ended up using the old covers from the Dicor wheel liners on my new Alcoa wheels.
