I just bought a 2005 F-450 Dump. I would like to know where do you guys get your wheel simulators from?

Thanks,

Ed

Do the snap on simulators work ok or do they tend to pop off or make noise?
The snap on ones seem easier to deal with and less expensive than the bolt on but I know nothing of how well they stay put.

I have the bolt on one and are very happy with them. JC Whitney usually has some real good prices.

I have had good luck w/ both versions. The bolt on look more real.

i got mine from ebay. awesome deal, and great sims. stainless steel. you'd be better off i think with the ones that go under your lug nuts for the anti-theft reasoning.

this is the guy i bought from, $79 plus $30 shipping! these are a steal. and this guy shipped super fast. i recommended him to some guys near me, and they bought from him also. nothing but good things to say about them.
these are the ones in the auction, on my truck..

get the bolt ons otherwse someone will steal them

I got good results on my f-350 by covering the tire and shooting some gang banger ghetto chrome spray paint on them and they held up well
