Wheel covers

My white wheel covers keep coming off at highway speeds. Should I use the bungee cords that came with them to fix that?

You may want to add some super Velcro as well.

Yep, kinda like the way Ultra-leather replaced Naugahyde when the Naugas went extinct. ;-)

If you just painted the sidewalls white you wouldn't need wheel covers.

I'm going with the nails folks. Good UV protection and minimum flapping at cruising speeds I'm guessing. Thx Eddie Elk

Might want to reconsider and use self taping screws. Won't pull out as easy.

I thought you might have better with luck rubber cement on the inside of the cover and 1/2 staples every 2 inches around the outside edges.
