To start off, I read this in the latest Great RV Accessories newsletter and it seems like a great idea. I remember times crossing the south where the bugs were so thick, it took hours to get them off the front of the truck. So I think this might be a good way to ease that job:

You got that from seeing the one on my truck door didn't you??????....

Once you have gone around and measured all 4 wheels you will know if one is overheating....

I don't remember seeing your truck four years ago.

I found this cool copper-colored spray paint and spray those white bad boys to match my interior. Looks fabulous and blends right in! I use it to spray those white, plastic-coated organizers and racks, too.

I bet that is less expensive than trying to find the custom colored hooks!

Have to agree about using spray paint. We've used speckled & plain spray paint on everything from plastic to metal instead of replacing the perfectly good towel bar, plant pot, chair, etc...

If you have any recommendations, I have to refinish a cast iron and wood outdoor bench. It weighs a ton but aside from the paint finish, it's like a tank.

You'll need to brush off (I use a metal bristled brush) all loose paint chips and basically sand for a smoother finish. I always use the satin/flat spray paints because they hide all the flaws, versus the hi-gloss types. I have to do our wrought iron patio furniture every few years this way, but I can experiment with colors, like green & black. We have a towel bar inside shower back wall & while remodeling, I couldn't find a plastic replacement one that matched the new darker tile & metal not a good option in steam area, so I painted w/speckled brown spraypaint & it looks fantastic. Make sure to buy the kind that is recommended for the surface you're painting. The wood outdoor bench sounds big & may be better brush painted with an outdoor oil paint.
