Wheel bolt covers

Post by scooobydont » Fri Feb 09, 2018 1:45 pm

Having just had my wheels refurbished in shadow chrome, the wheel bolts look horrible (and rusty).

Has anyone used got any recommendations wheel bolt covers? There are plenty on ebay but wondered if anyone has used a brand they rate.

I just wire brush mine and spray the heads black. Lasts for about 12 months depending on how often I remove the wheels..

I have those covers. Lasted a year so far and look fine. They do them in black as well.

I have the black ones fitted to my zed. If the cap fitting feels a bit loose,stick a thin strip of insulation tape on the inside wall of the caps and they will fit like a glove. :thumbsup:

I bought a set of tpi smoked chrome wheel bolt covers on ebay. My alloys are shadow chrome and they blend in nicely.
