Upgrade your vehicle with wheel covers online at low cost
Wheel covers or hubcaps function as protection for the car rims. They are mounted on top of them and thus cover all wheel hubs and wheel nuts and partly also the brake disc. The main task is to protect the wheel covers from wetness and dirt. But you can also create an optical upgrading, through different colours and designs. There is a large selection of decorative trims, as they differ in size, production material, design and colour. At the moment there are hubcaps made of rubber, metal and corrosion-resistant aluminium. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages. Advantages are the corrosion resistance of aluminium and plastic, resistance of chrome-plated covers, load capacity of metal flaps and resistance to deformation of rubber caps. It is important to find the right and suitable cap for your vehicle. You can also distinguish between open and closed hubcaps. Open ones have larger holes and allow ventilation of the brake system. They can be individually designed by different shapes of the slots. However, this also makes cleaning complex and they do not ensure complete protection for the brake discs. This problem can be solved with closed hubcaps, although there is no ventilation because the holes are much smaller or fail completely, but the protection is complete and cleaning is easy.

Choose the right hubcaps at Q-Parts24
In addition to all the selection criteria for shape, design and material, hubcaps are also distinguished on flat and convex wheel trims. There are also different mounting methods. On the one hand, they can be fastened by means of retaining clips and locking ring. This method is very simple but not very durable and strong. Another possibility is to mount them with wheel bolts, a much safer method, but it requires a more complex mounting. The choice is entirely up to you. However, you must first be aware of the size of the wheel cover and the condition of the tyres. These are decisive for the right choice. The last figure on the tyre is important, e.g. 170/70R14, the last figure indicates the size of the wheel cover, in this case 14 inches.
