Walking Hubcaps


Recommended Posts

They walk as a result of wheel flexing. The wheel flexing is normal. I had metal valve stems installed when I last put tires on my 51 Cranbrook. You can also take a short piece of air hose or fuel line that will fit over the valve stem and it will prevent the wheel cover from cutting into the valve stem, but it won't stop the wheel cover from walking. I have heard some folks have had some success in stopping the movement by placing a bead of adhesive caulk on the wheels where the wheel cover clamps contact the wheel and then installing the wheel cover.
