Hey, you're in the vehicle / car zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cars / Trucks / Vans Category: Tires

Problem:

Wheel covers / hubcaps make noises when the tires move/rotate.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Appropriate wrench for your wheel covers/hubcaps (may have been provided by dealer or may need to be purchased)

  • Blanket/tarp

  • Silicone-based grease

Solution:

If you find that as your tires move/rotate, noises seem to be coming from your wheel covers/hubcaps, some tightening is in order at the very least.

Depending on how "stubborn" the squeaking noise of the wheel covers/hubcaps is, you may have to try all the solutions listed on here:

Solution 1

The most basic solution involves doing the following:

  1. Tighten the locking nuts of the wheel covers/hubcaps with the appropriate wrench.

Solution 2

If the above does not work, the next possible solution involves doing the following: 

  1. Unscrew the locking nuts of the wheel covers/hubcaps and remove them off the tires/wheels.

  2. Lay the wheel covers/hubcaps, with their tags facing up, on a blanket/tarp so as not to accidentally scratch them.

  3. Apply a layer of silicone grease on the tags of the wheel covers/hubcaps.

  4. Then, take each wheel cover/hubcap, put it in place on the tire/wheel and secure it thereto with the use of the locking nuts, making sure you tighten the nuts with the appropriate wrench.

  5. With all wheel covers/hubcaps back in place, conduct another check to make sure all locking nuts are snug tight.

In following either one of the solutions, hopefully you'll be driving wheel-cover-noise-free.
