Enhance the appearance and value of your Chevy Astro Van at a fraction of the cost of replacement chrome or steel wheels.
Check our pictures to ensure that your wheels match the
Wheelskins exactly. Count the lugs, the spokes, and the holes or slots, and
make sure they are exactly the same in every detail. Wheelskins are engineered
to fit perfectly on the rims they are designed for, but they are NOT interchangeable with other
styled wheels even if they "look pretty close." Call or email if you have
any questions 888-526-0273.
Everyone loves the sparkle of chrome on their vehicles. Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of real chrome plated wheels, whether alloy or steel, is their tendency to corrode when exposed to winter salt driving conditions, or even to coastal salt air. Hence the fine print warrantee warning of chrome wheel manufacturers: “Do not drive chrome wheels in snow!” and “Salt can deteriorate and corrode your chrome.”
What's the story with Hubcaps versus Wheelskins?
Wheelskins are the best kept secret in the automotive wheel fashion industry. When installed, you can only tell the difference between Wheelskins and real chrome rims if you know what to look for. Thousands of sets of Wheelskins are sold to auto dealers, who mount them on new and used vehicles for sale on their lots. Their customers are very happy they have purchased their vehicles with 'chrome wheels' at a bargain price.
Hubcaps ('wheel covers' is an equivalent term) dress up standard steel wheels. Hubcaps are completely interchangeable, any style of the proper size will fit any standard steel wheel. But hubcaps do not fit Styled wheels. Styled Wheels do not have the recess around the bead that standard hubcap legs mount into, so standard hubcaps can NOT fit any styled wheel. Therefore...
were invented in the 1990s as a great way to put brilliant chrome covers on
styled wheels. Precision molds were designed to produce wheel covers that
perfectly match the geometry of specific styled wheels. They fit like a
second skin, hence their name. Wheelskins mount with steel or plastic clips that
grab the rim either at its outer edge or at the base of its spokes.
Impostor™ chrome Wheelskins are a snap to install, and are easy to keep clean: simply wash with regular auto soap and water or take it through a car wash to maintain their new appearance. Wax the same as your car.
Wheelskins are constructed of high-impact, corrosion resistant, triple-chrome plated ABS polymer to give your vehicle a sharp appearance for many years. ABS has the attributes of rigidity, strength, and high resistance to salt, chemicals, heat, cold, and impact. A major advantage to this material is that when it gets scratched, it does not degrade further with time and exposure to these factors. So five years hence, the scratch will look the same as it did the first day. Whereas chromed metal, either steel or alloy, will react with oxygen and salt, and will rust, pit, scale, or flake after it has been scratched. There are several manufacturers of Wheelskins, the two best known are the Impostors™ brand and the Wheelskins brand. There is only one model of Wheelskin that matches each specific styled wheel, and that wheelskin does not fit any other wheel.Auto enthusiasts and dealers across the US certify to the quality of AutoAmenity hubcaps products and services.
