Need tire/rim shop Colorado Springs, Co.

I am in Colorado Springs, Co. at KOA Fountain, Co.

I had a flat a bit back and the guy who fixed it used an impact gun to put the hubcap/ chrome insert thingie on the rim of my rt. outside dually.
Which of course he stripped and the lugs loosened, came off and left the
valve stem braids holding the hubcap on. A nice man took a lug from the other side and got it to hold.

He suggested I replace the braids and/or put new extenders on and get
new lug nut bolts and lug nuts. of course I lost the chrome covers for the
lug nuts. or just take it off until I get home.

Camping world which is 1/2 mile away was no help.

So I need suggestions on a tire/rim shop. I've called a couple. they said
they could remove the hubcap & install braids but I have to get them. I've
been to several auto parts & they don't have them.

There are two mobile RV guys listed in the KOA info sheet as vendors.

Any suggestions? Also, I don't have a tow car.

The service dude wasn't even interested. He said I needed to get the size (length, and which braid it was.. there are 'many') I told him it was right outside & he said "well I'm a bit busy right now & can't help you. It takes about 7 - 10 days to order & we are backed up in service for 2 weeks". There was not a single person in line only 1 person in the check out line. "I asked how I could tell which braid it was".. told me to take it off & Bring them in. I asked if they could just remove them so I could take the hub cap off. He said "I told you we are 2 weeks out on service". just for fun I asked if I could make an appt for two weeks. you should have seen the glare. He said he'd take my number and get back to me. Yeah right. I left. I couldn't find any in the store.. I walked every isle.

Camping world has always been great.
We'll be friends until I'm old and senile, then we'll be new friends.

Not sure if you still need any help with this or not. If So, Call Auto Tech Plaza On Platte Ave in the Springs. They located right near Layton Truck. They are near Platte and Boulder. They are fantastic 6 new Michelien tires on my Bounder for 3200. They do it all.
