Rear Wheel Covers

Anyone know a source for replacement rear wheel covers?

Be sure and watch the screws that hold the center cover for the hub in place. One of mine worked loose and slung the center cover off somewhere on I-40 between Arkansas and Tennessee.

I hesitate to even think of replacing them with alloy wheels, I'm sure it's prohibitive.

I'm not certain, but I think that the wheel covers on my 2014 Solera are from Dicor - Dicor Products | Dicor Products | Official Website

But... I looked around their web site and didn't quite find the right covers. They may be there ...

Suggest you search the Solera threads as this very topic was discussed in detail maybe a year or so ago. Also, there are detailed pictures in that thread, along with corrective measures from one member that pin pointed the exact failure that happens on some wheel covers.

I have been unable to find covers with the same emblem that came with the unit other than Dicor. The Dicor site does not show the exact style FR used.

I plan on switching to the bolt on still all around.

Looks like it's a bit of a process to install those bolt on wheel covers... Please let us know how that goes!

Dave

PS - They do look good!

Will do! Don't know when I will do this as I might try and repair the tabs on my current covers. If that does not work to my satisfaction then on to the bolt ons.

I don't think the bolt on install will be much of a deal and you only have to do the setup once.

I believe the rivets begin to fail due to wheel cover movement within the wheel. There are details in that post as I recall.

It is kind of a poor design. The rivets are not strong enough and the "pin" bar that is held on by the rivets is to brittle.

I am going to try and repair anyway and we will see what happens.
