Motorhome Chrome Wheel inserts:

I need to replace the chrome cans that cover the axle ends. I also need to find the ten hole chrome rings that back the lug nuts. Has anyone found a source for these from Airstream?

I hope you come up with a source as we need the same things for our 310.

I'd sure like to see some pics; not sure what wheel covers you have.

If they aren't too rusted out, you can get them re-chromed...a lot of biker shops have contacts.

Unhappy Motorhome Chrome Wheel Inserts

Wheel Masters will have everything you need to replace. If you are wanting to replace a full set of chrome inserts you can get them at Camping World too. A full set is about $ 350 for 4 wheels and I'm sure more if you have the tag axle.
Mine are severely rusted, PO went to coast and did not wash off salt water thus ruining chrome inserts and caps. To make matters worse he painted them aluminum. Naval Jelly removed the paint and a lot of the rust, but I will have to buy a new set to have decent looking wheels.

Our coach lives close to salt water for six months out of the year, I've had no problems with the Wheel Masters. I do use Mother's cleaner a lot to keep them shiny and protected.

Mother's polish works wonders on chrome for both looks and protection. Wish the PO had used it.

Great product, get the pliers for the lug nut covers.
