Front Alcoa Center Cap Needed

Anybody know where I can get the chrome center hub "moon" cover. It measures 8-1/2" and it.s for a 22-1/2" front Alcoa wheel. If anyone knows a part number as well, that would be perfect!

Do these caps mount from behind the wheel or snap in from the front?

They just snap in from the front, at least mine do. You should be able to get one at a truck parts dept. like Kenworth, Pete, etc.

Ebay search "Alcoa wheel hub cap"

The fronts are $16.95 on an ad there now.

Best luck

Alcoa aluminum rim center cap - results. You reminded me I also need both front caps. Since I don't have one to compare it will be fun matching my rims.

Where I got mine but a good truck center should have them also. By the time one figures shipping etc, not much saved on line, but Raneys gives good service....just know your size ant spacings needed. The little tabs rust out so loss is fairly common. b

You put a dab of silicone on the tabs - they stay in place longer.
There are 2-3 configurations of tabs so an old one is almost necessary...

Buy the stainless steel ones, some of the chrome ones are cheap and rust quickly even if waxed. I agree that Kenworth or Peterbuilt dealer would have the best ones, also they will give you the correct one for your wheels just by looking at them.

Which hub cover configuration you need is dictated by the wheel hub, not the wheel type. The centering tabs are located in different places depending on who made the hubs/brake drums.
Played that game when I put Alcoa's on our rig. Even took it right to WheelMaster HQ. Found the right hub covers but couldn't get long enough lug covers so I used the old stainless wheel cover centers.
