My wheel caps are very loose.

Is there some knod of goop that I can use to keep them on.
I dont want to use supper glue as I need to be able to take them off evry 6,000 miles when I rotate my tires.

Thanks

Mark

Ummm.... you sure about that? No wonder they're all loose.

Put a dab of clear silicone on the edge of them...they'll stay on until you pry them off.

Clear silicone....nice idea thanks.

Is 6,000 miles too soon?

6000 is not too soon, I just don't understand why you are pulling the caps to remove the tyres. If you are talking about the center caps there is really no reason to remove them. If you are talking about hte lug caps they definately are not designed to come off. You can however purchase new caps if yours have become truely battered from lug wrenches.

I kept losing mine on my prior '97 P38. Ordered many plus spares from Atl. British, unti they finally told me to put clear silicone as someone suggested. Funny, I thought someone was stealing mine until I found two in my driveway/ditch, they would dislodge as I hit a bump.

Sorry you are correct.
I just had my tires balanced and a front end alignment.

You need to take the caps off for balancing.
I wont be balancing them every 6,000....lol

I use silicon on mine as well, like many others. Works great :thumb:

Why not just rotate the entire wheels? :think: No need to rebalance them that way.

Tnago, I relize that. I stated that in my last post. I want thinking correctly before.

Oh, where do you place the silicone? On the inside tabs or the outside lip of the cap?
