Default Stop wheel covers from rotating

Chuck the Tire Man told me about a method to stop wheel covers from rotating.

I believe he said Lazy Daze adds a 1" long threaded nut to one of the wheel bolts. The original wheel nut is left in place. The extended nut is added. That extended nut fits inside the fake nut on the wheel simulator. The wheel simulator will then only rotate until it hits the nut extension.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

Default Re: Stop wheel covers from rotating

I had one rotate "off". All the rivets came loose on the clips that hold it on. Only the valve extensions kept it loosely in my possession. The other side was getting loose too. This is on a 2005 Chevy with 20K miles. Called the hubcap manufacturer; they said "buy another one - that one's no good"! So I took off all 4, and got plastic "chrome" center caps and trim rings. They are light weight, and leave the wheel holes uncovered for better brake ventillation. We'll see how they hold up; haven't travelled with them yet, gotta get some tires first.
