22.5" Wheel Covers

Anyone know where to get 22.5" wheel covers, rings, or whatever to add a little classier look to our wheels?

I am afraid I will never find anything that would work on a 6 lug configuration.

What did they use on the chicken bus? Were those special wheels or covers?

Actually none of those will work as I need 22.5" with a 6 hole configuration. I don't think any trucks today use that.

I've seen plenty of stainless inserts, but never a 22.5" 6-lug.

Maybe just paint the wheels to look nice?

Hi everyone I'm new to this site. Sorry to bring back an old subject but I can't find it anywhere else.

Does someone know if there is a company that sell wheel simulator like the ones in the link posted above but made in plastic?

I don't want to pay as much as the one made in stainless steel.

Thanks

I also would still like to find these in a 6-Lug configuration.

I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy....I will see what I can find. I know he found simulators for the dayton wheels on the local fire department's FWD brush truck. I WILL own that FWD someday, just for the record. If he could find them for that goofy old thing, I'm sure we can do something about your budds. What size is the pattern spacing? 6 on ????

Wheel simulators are very versatile, and don't be fooled by the amount of lugs you see. I had a set on one of my wreckers that had a ten lug pattern, but they were all fake, the whole thing got held in place with only two nuts that fit over the end of the wheel studs...this would work on any pattern of lug system as long as there were at least a pair of lugs directly opposite each other. The only other real configuration issue was size and depth.

A quick google search for "wheel simulator 22.5" 6 lug" turned up quite a few hits, including one on ebay...
