Wheel Simulator, makes them look kind of like aluminum wheels.

If you feel you must have them, the Real Wheels brand is nice looking and as easy on/off as it gets, since they are held on with two large phillips screws. Personally I hate the things and first order of business when I got my used View home was to remove the brand new Real Wheels simulators the broker had installed a couple of days earlier. (opting out of them would not change the price, since it was a brokered deal for an estate).

I can now inspect and service the tires and wheels easily, and don't need any long extended stems to do it (they make removing or replacing the wheels a real trick since you don't want to damage the stems.)

Anything else you can do to "dress up" the plain wheels? The simulators are a PITA to get in to check PSI, etc.

On our first MH that had the pound uhm clip on wheel covers, I took them off, removed the wheel sanded it down to smooth out the scraped off paint from the wheel covers.
Taped off the tires , primered then painted the wheels.
Got the color pretty close to the main color of the vinyl strip on the side of the MH.
I just used Krylon rattle can paint.

Turned out nice , got quite a few comments on them ...
People saying the same thing about the wheel covers being a PITA and liked what I did.

Not quite. Hub caps do just that, cover the hub. Simulators look like chrome versions of the dually wheels. Wheel covers are neither hub caps or simulators, but are decrative covers for the entire wheel, not just the hub.
