Here's what I'd like to do with my wheels >>

I just want to dress them up a bit rather than trying to find "mags" for it. I want to replace the lug nuts with chrome ones, and find a cap to cover the center hub. Do you know what size hub cap (cover) I want? They're 13" tires.

If you take off a wheel and measure the centrebore any auto performance or tire shop should be able to order you center caps, they come in stainless or chrome.

The caps are easy to get but I don't know about the sizes.
A buddy had the same rims and dressed them up by painting them with grey Plasticoat spray paint. He then added the chrone accents and they look awesome for a job that didn't cost much at all.

Duplicolor has a new spray paint that you can paint a rim with and if you decide to change it you peel it off in a sheet.. you could change your rim color every time you go camping

Hub caps

I bought hub caps for mine that snap over the lug nuts and really dress up the wheels. They are chrome-plated plastic, but what isn't these days. Since all 5 lug wheels use the same bolt pattern, they fit all steel wheels. Just place over the lug nuts and twist to lock them in place, untwist to remove. $16 apiece at CW and cheaper/easier than chrome lug nuts and center cap.

I kind of wish I would have had plain white spoke steel wheels. The wheels on my camper were chrome steel and must have been a poor chrome job because they were severely rusted. The only way to make them look better would have been to strip all the remaining chrome off and then paint them. I opted to just bite the bullet and purchase new aluminum wheels.

I found the best price on trailerwheelcom trailer king. They were $79 each but at least they are low maintenance and modern looking. I really did not want to spend the extra cash because I had to buy 4 new tires also. But now my 2006 will have some 2016 modern RV wheels.

I went to trailerwheel.com and their site is hard to navigate. I couldn't find the wheels you were talking about. Do you happen to have a link? Thanks

I the same 13" wheels. I bought these for my trailer from Eastern Marine. Cheap and they look really nice. You can kind of see them in the photo below. Jayco used to include these covers on older models. My '03 Kiwi had tan colored ones.



Eastern Marine also has hub covers and lug covers.

If you have a Bass Pro close by, go look in the trailer repair/maint section or tires & accessories, etc., and look for some center hub covers similar to what was referred to above.

I got some for my 13" wheels on the boat trailer this past weekend for $15/ea. These just snap on over the lug nuts and hub center.
