Alcoa Wheel Covers

I lost both of the front wheel covers on my 22.5" Alcoa wheels. I can't find a source for replacements--any suggestions?

I'm confused - Alcoa wheels don't have wheel covers - they are polished aluminum. Are you referring to the small hub covers in the center of an Alcoa aluminum wheel?
Newmar should be able to tell you the manufacturer they bought from, and might even have the part available.

I'm also surprised to see a Workhorse chassis on a 2011 Conyon Star. Newmar only specs a Ford chassis for the 2011, since Workhorse no longer had the GM gas V8 engine available and was out of the gas chassis business by then.

I'm also

If you are talking hub caps, the little cover in the middle, you can find thenm in truck stops.

Maybe wheel cover was the wrong terminology, but it's an 8 1/2" cover over the wheel bearing oil reservoir. Snaps over the rim.

Gary, I got one of the last workhorse chassis that Newmar had in stock. It was the major reason for buying that make/model.

Ron, I've already checked their catalog--it's not in there.

Yes, I will call Newmar tomorrow.

P.S. If you click on the picture in my sig., you can get an idea what they look like.

As a side note. When you get the replacements. Prior to putting them on, put a couple of dots of clear silicone sealer on the mount. When it dries it will keep them from popping off again. Getting the caps off later is not hard.

That's a hub cover or cap. They come in a couple of sizes and trucks tops often have them. Also in that Alcoa catalog kb9tf showed in his reply.

Bob,

If you still haven't found a source for replacement... you might try RVChassisParts.com.

They stock more diesel RV parts than gasser... but they're prices aren't bad and they ship quickly.

Good luck!

Here is a source:

They are pricier than the truck stops but these are SS. The chrome ones I have found will start picking up rust quickly.

Thanks for all the responses. Just ordered two stainless steel caps from Iowa80.com at $11 each.
