Is this a wheel cap? If so, where do I get one?

This one apparently got schmooshed by the PO. I've worn out a set of tires going from store to specialty store trying to find a new one. I have Alcoa wheels, and the other three wheels have lovely ones.

Any ideas on who would sell them?


If it's to be, it's up to me.

Greetings Aage!

If you have the bore measurement and the depth of cap needed, one of the following two on-line sources may have what you need. They both had the size that I needed for the new wheels that I purchased for my Overlander (the ones that came with the wheels weren't deep enough).

Trailer and Truck Parts

Trailer Tire and Wheel Supermarket

or possibly:

Out of Doors Mart

Good luck with your search!

i'd try to straighten it out! even if you have to use heat and then shrink it! ya can't hurt it-may as well give 'er a bash or two-form a chunk of 2x4 wood to match the inside-put it on something that has a little "give" but is sturdy and won't move too much (like an anti-fatique floor mat) and whack the 2x4 til the dang thang starts looking like its former self. if the wood ain't stout enough to remove any "NEW" (dented) high crown areas then use a brass drift bar and bash away until it starts cooperating. If I were there, I'd gladly give you hand, but Ontario is a ways...

Kevin, I'll give those leads a shot, you never know.

Airslide, WMarsha, I showed the good side of the cap, now here's t'other side. Let me know if it looks good to straighten.

ps: it might have gone on the Mexico caravan, because Henri did do that one, but the dent looks suspiciously like the deck I pulled him away from last week...
If it's to be, it's up to me.

I just went through this a couple of months ago on a 74 Ambassador. Had a TERRIBLE time! Spent every night for a week online with no luck. Called all over the United States, no luck. It appears that your cap is 3.75" very difficult to find this diameter (it's partial to Airstream). Finally found one at Camper Repair Center in Alabama. (205) 665-2531. Ask for Sonny and be prepared to open your pocketbook.

I keep saying to people, "Call Colaws RV salvage." However, as said before, hold on to your checkbook. Just Google Colaws Rv salvage. They have lots of Airstreams in all sizes and categories.
