Yes on wire ties. Lots of posts about this. See the "double blowout" thread:
Double Blowout
I wire tie the wheel covers to the wheels and the valve extenders to the covers.

DaveJoran, if you installed the same valve stems that your link shows, you don't use extensions. They come with stabilizers for the long stems that fit in the wheel, not the cover and do not need tying. As for the wheel covers; if they fit properly they should not need tying either, but nothing wrong with a little insurance.
My wheel covers fit snugly and are not easy to remove.

The stems are rigid and I did not need too modify my covers in any way.
I did bend the stems slightly to allow my TPMS sensors to clear the hole in the cover.

When we picked up our unit from the dealer, I asked them to cut air compressor hose to length and then slide over valve stems and secure with zip ties. This worked well for the 2 years we owned our Solera before trading up in size. I requested this after reading on this forum. What a great resource!
