Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It’s easy to love the simplicity of a hubcap. Also known as a wheel cap, this simple metal disc can add charm and a touch of intrigue to your car. You could not ask for more when it comes to this accent that is so easy to install. It immediately improves the appearance of your car, while protecting your car’s wheel well. When you are choosing your hubcaps here are a few questions you should consider:

1. What size hubcap should I buy?

The best place to start is the size wheel cap you will need, as there is a vast range of sizes available. Before you choose the design you like there first rule of thumb is that you must check the size of your tires. You could try measuring with a measuring tape, but it’s more accurate to simple check the code on the side of your tires. The correct code you need is the one that ends in the letter "R" with a number beside it. For example, if your tire has a code that says "R16" at the end, you need 16” hubcaps.

2. What are the benefits of getting them in Chrome?

Chrome wheel caps stand up better to corrosion. Some hubcaps also have a layer of paint for added resistance to corrosion or rust.

3. Why do Hubcaps fall off when I’m driving?

This is a common problem because there are several reasons why hubcaps fall off or go missing sometimes. If your tires touch or hit the curb or too forcefully, the impact could cause the wheel cap to become dislodged. Other reasons include incorrect installation, damaged or broken holding clips and potholes. Even the weight of an RV or trailer can be a factor, as it can cause steel wheels to warp or flex, causing hubcaps to move out of place and separate from your wheel.

The good news is that the best part about replacing a wheel cap or hub cap is that you don’t need any tools to do it. Perhaps one of the easiest car accessories to set up, it takes only a few minutes and requires so little of your time and energy, it would be hard to break a sweat. It’s much easier to take care of a flat tire with this lightweight car part makes the job easier than struggling and tugging on a rim. You can find your special combination of fashion and functionality as online retailers make it easy for you to access stunning rim-like designs at a fraction of the price. It doesn’t matter what you drive, a set of hubcaps is a great way to give your car a touch of flair.
