Wheel Simulators

I have a 1991 Class A on a Ford Oshkosh with 19.5" wheels. Was wanting to get new wheel simulators for it. Been checking around at different web sites and not sure which ones to get. Do I go by year, depth of rim, lugs, style, size, holes in rim, or manufacture (ford, Chevy, dodge etc.), RV, Truck. So far I have not found any that matches more than a couple of items. Like for 1991 Ford Truck or Ford dually F550 or for RV but wrong year. Did Oshkosh use different wheels than Ford. Lots of different ones on Ebay and other web sites. The ones on it now are more like aluminum hubcaps. I like the look of the rear wheels that sink into rim and are stainless. Thanks for any comments.

rvwheel.com shows simulators for the Oshkosh chassis. Looks a little expensive, but might help you figure out what you need.

What the heck are "wheel simulators" ? Never heard that term before! I guess you must be talking about "hubcaps" or "wheel covers" as we call them in the south. Enlighten me please! Thanks!

So Wheel Simulators are a fancy name for hubcaps or wheel covers, right?

Yup. If they were called hubcaps they couldn't charge as much for them.

Thanks for all the replies. I have checked out the links that everyone posted. Mshappycampers I have hubcaps on it now, but I like the look of the simulators they look more like wheels. Just preference. Again thanks for all the replies. Looking forward to getting this on the road.

As far as I know wheel simulators is the name for the ones that dish out and in according to if its front or rear on a dual wheel set up .... the hubcaps or wheel covers where the kind that could go on the front or rear

there is also a new term out "wheel skins" they look just like the oem steel wheel for a truck/suv/car and hug it just like a "skin" makes your steel wheel look like a chrome wheel they are made especialy for each viehicle and not universal

Yeah Joe, you are lucky, that Monaco looks really great with the alum wheels, would have spelled it out but I'm to lazy/stupid

I am going to someday get alcoa wheels for my expedition, as it has steel wheels and wheel covers. New polished wheels from my local supplier are around 300.00 sans tires....glup!
Happy Trails

Joe if you get wheel skins you cover up your nuts and make them shine,that way you don't have to buy a cover for each of your nuts. Jim
