Lug bolt size on '78 Tradewind -- and covers?

OK, so my lug bolts are ugly and make my dirty aluminum wheels look even worse.

I'm thinking about push-on lug bolt covers. Are they 13/16" like I think?

Has anybody tried them?

They don't fit all that tight; we'll see how many are left after the next road trip

Put a dab of RTV silicone on the inside of the caps, and shove them onto the bolts. When the RTV sets, the caps will be difficult, but not impossible, to remove.

If anyone else is as goofy as I am and likes the idea of covering ugly lug bolts, here they are.
