I took mine off a week after I bought the rig in January. Just going to sand and repaint the rims. Covers are a pain and don't do anything except get in the way of putting air in.

How about an eight lug chrome rim that would fit the front axle and the rear, outside wheel of the duel axle.?? Thanks
I got mine from Amazon. They were good quality and reasonably priced.

Agreed, finally pulled mine off after a year. Much easier to check tire pressures in the rear.

If you don't want Alcoa rims (very nice; I happen to have them), you might consider having your rims powder coated. In our area, Les Schwab will do them inexpensively. There are several nice colors, including metallic that you can choose.

I had the steel rims on my dinghy powder coated and they look good.

I used to have the simulators on my last RV and agree it was a pain to check the air in the tires.

I just removed the simulators and used my dremel to custom enlarge the hole for the valve stems and the tpms sensors. Worked like a champ and actually looks good!

Lost a jam nut and replaced with a standard lug nut until my replacement arrives. I am going to pull the simulators back off and spray paint the rim black so the gray does not show through. Here is a pic of the rim, sorry for the rain.
