Where to buy Chrome Parts for Aluminum Wheels

I just completed the conversion from Steel Stud Piloted (Budd) Wheels and Hubs to the more popular Hub Piloted Aluminum Wheels.

Now I need to find some attractive Chrome Top Hats and lug covers at a reasonable price to complete the project.

I will be looking in the USA along the West Coast or maybe Arizona as prices and selection here in BC is not very good.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Rob,

I have Alcoa wheels (22.5) on my GBM Cruisemaster. I lost a front center cap first day on a 2-1/2 month trip this summer. I looked on line and found replacements at Raney's Truck Parts. They have a web site. Make sure you check the size and match the correct number of clips to you wheels. I ordered polished stainless steel instead of chrome. My originals from Freightliner are S.S. They were around $12 each. I'm not sure if Raney's has the rears but if they don't they can probably tell you where to find them. I believe Raney's also sells the chrome lug nuts.

Thanks Everyone!

I found some nice moon style Stainless Caps for the Fronts now looking for some similar Top Hats for the rears.

Pretty sure I'll find some soon!

Try Iowa80.com. A truck stop, repair, and chrome shop with an excellent on line catalog. Got all my nut covers from them.

. Of course they are on the other side of the world .. But they sell off the web and ship. Besides, sooner or later, everyone comes to Florida.
