I put a small dab of permatex on my lug covers to keep them on. IDK about the centers, mine are held on by the lugs.

I took all of my front wheel lug covers off, then used a point punch/hammer and added a slight "Point" into all the factory flat dimples. I believe the lug covers fit into the end of an anvil or edge of a vice for support before hitting with the hammer. Now they go on tight and don't come off until you remove them with a channel-lock pliers. Put them on with a rubber mallet.

Sounds like they're just worn out. My rig is 20 years old and I've only had to replace around 4 of them. Find them at most truck stops. Couple bucks each. When I take them off, I'm careful. When I put them on, I squeeze them a bit on the locking side. They have a little indent on one side to sort of friction lock it in place.

Dunno. What size are your lug nuts? And can you take a picture and post it here?

Mine are 1.25" lug nuts and there are millions of metal covers for them around.

I just replaced 10 of mine because they were looking pretty bad. I ordered my 33mm size nut covers from Iowa80 truck stop. Lots of styles and sizes to choose from. Good Luck

Iowa 80 truck stop sells the full-range of lug covers for HDT wheels.
Ha! Ron posted while I was typing, that is the largest truck stop in America.
