Wheel Simulators

I thought about just getting lugnut covers, but then i noticed that one of the dual rims in the back is gray and the other is chrome..... And Im not painting them black.

I also cant afford new rims, especially since I just got new tires, so I was wondering who has simulators?

Also how well do they stay on? are they like a cars plastic ones that can fly off or do they stick really good? 85% of my driving is in a corragated field (row crop) and on ditch banks, pastures, gravel roads, and generally anything but smooth clean surfaces.

And where to get some good ones for a reasonble price?

Thanks

Mike

Best place I know to get them. I have never ran them so I dont really have an opinion.

So are there different simulators for 4x4s? I have manual locking hubs, which I use at least twice a week. Or do you have to take the covers off to use manual hubs or cut the centers out so I can use them regularly?

I am sure someone makes them with a hole cut out but I have not seen any.

So after searching old threads and at the nation, I might not want to get simulators, they say if you go off road, then dont get them cause they wear out fast and get tore up really easy.

But I still cant afford new rims, and I dont want to paint them black, what do you think are other options?
