I have a 2002, 37 ft-gas,Newmar Mountain Aire. The REAR-- wheel cover simulators don't center on the wheels. You can install them centered, tighten them down good, and they immediately go off center. They move in the direction of their choice, about 3/8"-1/2". It's like they are slightly too small for the application. The front wheel covers fit fine

Any ideas??

To be properly anchored you need to have two anchors one on each of two lugs (special two piece bolts) They need to be opposite each other. If you have them properly tightened they should hold. If not - you simply have the wrong size on the rear. In that case sell 'em on E-bay and buy the right size for your rig.

Thanks for your answer Harpmaker. I do have the two special "large Nuts" that go on two opposite studs- ie: the wheel simulator goes on first, then the two large nuts on to the wheel studs and then the hub cover with two thin large nuts that tighten down both the simulator and the hub cover, and then the two acorns. That was the way it came to me-- do you know who manufactured the wheel simulators ? I guess I could call Newmar and they could tell me. I might call them. Mine immediately go off center when you hit the road.

Thanks again,

Max H

Sounds like the holes are bigger than the bolts.If you could find washers the size of the holes and bolts to keep the covers centered.A machine shop could grind a shoulder on the nuts to keep them centered.

I found that the wheel cover simulators apparently were not concentric in their manufacturing process. I rotated the covers to all 4 possible hole locations and "bingo" they fit properly only in one position. That is true on both rear wheels. I think the mystery is solved-- Thanks for your indulgence.
