Hub Caps

I recently ran across a very bumpy construction area of I-10. While in an area where they turned the 4 lanes into two way traffic and lined them with concrete barriers I watched my hub cap from the rear dullys bounce off the barriers and miss all traffic! Could not work up the nerve to stop all traffic in an attempt to retrieve!
Now I need to buy a replacement! Are they RV model specific? Do I need to shop for the replacement at an RV dealer or Freightliner Maybe a wheel and rim shop!

Do you have a picture of the other cap? A little more information is needed as they come in several makes and should be readily available both new and used.

Dicor - The Components RVs are Born With is a good place to start.

Just to clarify I was referring to the wheel covers themselves not the wheels and they are the 8 lug hole style. The 8 lugs throw a monkey wrench into the pricing structure. The aluminum wheels were a substantial higher cost also.

Thanks all! I found them online. They are ABS Plastic Axel covers. Price wasn,t bad considering it is a product that does nothing more than make things look pretty.
