Ugly semi-truck rims, ugly semi-truck lug nuts? Not since the truckers started covering them with decorative lug nut covers!
Lug nut covers started with just some standard sizes - 1.5”, 1.25” to fit over a standard semi-truck rim. Then when lug sizes changed, so did the lug nut cover. Now, the most common size is 33MM but hundreds of sizes and styles are made to fit every hex shaped bolt head or nut on the semi-truck.
The lug nut cover has come a long way from just being hex shaped to cover a hex bolt head or lug nut. While the covers are still available in a shiny polished chrome finish, they are now also available in stainless steel and ABS plastic finishes. And, the styling has changed as well. Now, they are as tall as 4” and are available in spiked and cylinder shapes. Some have flame logos etched on the side while others have different colored reflectors to match the trucks paint scheme. Even the big rig manufacturers have gotten in to the game by placing their logo on the top.
They are a simple, inexpensive addition to a big rig truck and help to keep the truck looking good for the driver and all to see.
