Wheel cover nuts

I have a 92 Oakland on a 350 ford chassis. It has nice shiny wheel covers that are held on with 2 nuts with ss covers. The fool at a tire shop tightened them to the point where they stripped. Does anyone know where we can find replacements?

Why not make the tire shop get and pay for the replacements?

You can get RV publications involved as addition leverage and if the tire shop is near your home, there is always small claims court.

Wheel Simulators
They carry parts, maybe they'll have what you need.

Check your truck stops. When I was in Flying J a couple of weeks ago they had some chrome wheel nut covers for sale.

For $20 in parts??? It's an obese possibility (fat chance) you'd get any publication to give a crap about a few bucks in parts. Not worth the time or effort to sue; besides, the tire store representative will simply say "My guys didn't do that" .... case dismissed. Now you're buying new parts AND not collecting court costs.

Your absolutely right. That is exactly what happened. I just want to get my wheel covers back on. The MH looks terrible without them.
