Q: The lug caps/hub caps fall off, how can I fix this?

asked by on

The plastic cover that goes over the metal lug nuts have fallen off all the wheels I replaced the plastic lug nuts in the caps I've tried extra long metal lug nuts with more threads I purchased a new rim I've tried moving them from wheel to wheel It seems that one or two of the plastic lug nuts will grip the metal lug nuts however they will fall off Nothing seems to work I've lost two caps Is there something I can put over the lugs so it wont look so bad Some other type of decorator cap or cover anything on the market This looks bad and drives me nuts Just put on new tires and the two caps I have are in the bed of the truck Thanks for any suggestions
