Cool 16" Wheel Cover Ideas

I am looking for ideas others may have had for a different look than the generic wheel simulators. I am considering paint contrasting the coach. stainless beauty rings, and stainless lug nut covers. Not sure what to do with the axle. Any pictures others may have of theirs would be great. The expensive simulators that crack after a few years have to go!

We are spoiled that the last owner of our rig installed polished Alcoa rims.

I do like the Alcoas but a little spendy for me and I rotate all six tires. Most installs I see have steel wheels on the inner tire.

Have the original chrome wheel covers on the front. Took off the wheel covers on the rear duals. Don't do anything but get in the way. Got sick of taking them off and on to check and fill the rear tires.

I would have expected at least a few photos as rv owners seem to have no shortage of creativity. I have considered Moon discs like on a LSR car. Old Radios, we seem to be on the same page for part of our toads, mine include a 94 Sportster 1200 Custom and a 89 Tour Glide Classic with a 68 Honda Cl 175 (restored)thrown in for variety. Cars I rent at my destinations.

Yup, we'd rather take the bikes than the car. A lot more fun.

When we tossed away the Aluminum wheel covers for good on ours I was happy to see the rims underneath were painted white rather than the standard grey. Our rig is white and the painted white rims look awesome imo.
