Missing a Hubcap…

October 13th, 2006

Hubcaps.com has been researching all of the possible design defects in factory original hubcaps and wheel covers, to help the general public to quickly and easily identify recurring problems with hubcaps falling off of the wheel.

Are you missing a hubcap? Believe it or not, most people never have to bother with the problem of missing hubcaps on their car or truck. This is mainly due to the way that their particular hubcap was manufactured by the factory. If designed correctly, hubcaps should fit on the wheel firmly as opposed to fitting too tight or too loose. Now common sense tells us, that a hubcap that is too loose will clearly fly off of the car on the first slight bump we encounter as we are driving down the road. As true as this fact is, a hubcap that fits too tight, also has major problems, leaving the car owner searching for a hubcap over and over until they find a permanent solution to the problem. When a hubcap that is too tight is installed on the wheel, a great amount of stress is put on the clip system of the hub cap, and makes it impossible for those clips to relax in place as a correctly designed hubcap should. Hubcaps that are designed too tight on the wheel seem to be the main reason that we see so many of the same model hubcaps resting on the side of our highways and roads.

Now we are left with the huge task of identifying the cars and trucks with the design flaws of being too tight, too loose or clips that were made too thinly, long before we have replaced several of the same wheel covers on our car, costing us as much as $80 each. Because there are so many cars and trucks with the same problems, the best way of identifying a possible problem is to call the help desk at Hubcaps.com 1-800-826-5880, or logging directly on to the web site at Hubcaps.com .
