Tow Vehicle Wheel Simulators

I'm presently seeking some info about different brands of dually truck wheel simulators. I tried to do a search but everytime I went to type in my search subject the screen would change and I could not do the search. So sorry if this is a redundant question.

Currently looking at Pacific, Phoenix and Eagle Flight. They all cost about the same with Phoenix on the higher side. Anybody have any experiences with any of these brands? Good, bad, etc.?

Forgive my ignorance, but what would a dually truck wheel simulator do for you?

A simulator is basically a hubcap that resembles a chrome wheel.

Yep. A chrome hubcap that covers the steel wheels. Y'all have seen them on motorhomes.

So does it look like an extra wheel?

The original poster did say "dually truck wheel simulators" and not fancy hubcaps.

A simulator covers the steel wheel, and SIMULATES a chrome wheel, for less cost than a real chrome wheel. Hence, the name.

Okay, So he just wanted the look of chrome wheels, and not the look of four aft wheels.

Thanks, Terry.

Thanks for stepping up and answering the questions for TomW

Does anyone own a set of any of the brands I mentioned in thread # 1? I would like your feedback on whether or not any of them are of good quality and if anyone has had any problems with them.
