I Lost A Hubcap, Does It Matter?

It can happen to us anytime of the year. We are driving on a country road with potholes, and BOOM!, we get home and realize a hubcap popped off which we will never see again. The first thing that comes to mind is “well that doesn’t look very classy.” The second thing that comes to mind is, “wow, I don’t want to spend any money right now.” We’d like to tell ourselves that we really don’t need that “decorative” hubcap and just keep on driving. I mean, we can’t see the missing hubcap from behind the wheel, now can we?

The truth is, if you lose a hubcap, you probably want to replace it? Why? Well, the hubcap, in addition to looking cool, actually protects the wheel nuts and wheel bolts from getting rusty and corroding. It definitely costs more in the long run to replace what holds your wheel onto the car than to replace a hubcap! So, if you lose a hubcap, at least get a really cheap replacement to keep your car from getting one step closer to the junkyard!
