I've also been trying to get a match to my 350LE lug nut covers. I thought I has a good match from Southwest Wheel in Dallas (part number 019001) but as you can tell from the attached pic, not quiet a match! It does fit the nut however it is slightly longer than the original and has a more pronounced "dome" (It's also made of..yuck!, plastic!)
Anyone find a direct replacement as none of the above threads seem to match ?

I got all new covers over a year ago...I think from camping world. They don't fit tight enough by themselves to stay on. I UTV two on as a test and lost them on the first trip out. How are folks securing their lug nut covers?

I purchased a set of 8 from a flying J. Just Generic 1 1/4" chrome covers. It cost me $3.99 plus tax. I have had no issues with them. I wish I would have bought four sets. They were the plastic ones, not the metal ones. However for $4/set I think I can buy a new one each year, and replace them as they wear.

Thanks to shepherd57, I'm going to order a set of covers from e.trailer.com and will let all know the result including "fit"
Vycan..I bet you're the guy who has plastic flowers in little flower pots scattered around the 36' Classic to make it look beautiful!

LOL... nope, not at all. To be fair, they look the same, and I have no concern if they fall off or someone steals them.

I do add custom paint to the exterior to make her beautiful, banks power pack to make her powerful... we all spend our money where we choose. I choose to put it towards the things I think matter.

I picked up some of the Wheel Master 1 1/16" and they work well and fit ok. I just did the front, and still plan on looking into the McGuard. The lug nuts on my rig have a flat washer...

Why get lug nut covers?—it just repeats the same problem over and over. I bought lug nuts that fit from an aftermarket store. And they were expensive, but no more loose covers or stripped ones that don't come off when you really need to get them off.

Last set I got was at a truck (big not pickup) supply place. Medal, SS I think. Use a rubble mallet to put them on and a couple of water pumps to get them off.
