Wheel lug covers

I have a 2010 Georgetown on a Ford chassis. On my last trip one of those little chrome wheel lug nut covers came off or someone thought they needed it worse than me. In any event I need to find a replacement. Can someone tell me where I can buy these little chromed covers? Are they something supplied by Ford with the chassis or are these some sort of aftermarket item put on by Forest River when applying the rest of the icing?

I've seen stuff like that at truck stops and big truck parts places.

Your rig should have come with a tool to the remove the cover. Looks like a t-bar handled not so sturdy lug wrench. Three of the lug nuts on the chrome cover hold it on and are marked with dashed indentations. They are easy to remove and viola the cover comes off.

If they are metal and they push off and on go to a truck stop, they sell a remover that looks like a pair of pliars that is made for them. You can also use that tool to kind of 'squeeze' the cap to a point it goes on tighter.

PS...here is one off ebay;

Starburst2 - Here is what I did. I lost (or someone permanently borrowed) one of my lug nut covers and the nut inside on my 2011 Georgetown 350. You can find the chrome covers at truckstops but you will struggle to fine the jam nut that fits inside of the cover and then fits a 22mm stud, assuming the nut inside is also missing.

The covers are made by a company called Kaper II, Inc. I called them and ordered three of the cover/jam nut combinations for $30 which included shipping (figured I might as well have a couple of spares).

Here is their contact info and the item number (took us a while to figure out the item number but these are the correct ones for the 2011 georgetown 350)

Kaper II
2212 Parrott Way
Leso, WA 98626
360-423-4404
email: info@kaper2.com

Item # L-225
Description: Cover, Lug nut / Jam Nut Combo, for a A-225k, fits 22mm Stud


Hope this helps,

Brian
