  1. step : Hand-Threading the Caps (1:19)
    • Always begin by threading each cap by hand. This will insure that they thread correctly.
  2. step : Tightening the Caps (1:37)
    • Once you are sure they are correctly threaded, grab your 19 mm socket and tighten up each cap. Remember, they are plastic, so don't over-tighten them or they may crack again and you'll end up back at step one.

Hi, I'm Mike Green, one of the owners of 1A Auto. I want to help you save time and money repairing and maintaining your vehicle. I'm going to use my 20+ years' experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from 1AAuto.com. The right parts installed correctly. That's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

When you leave in the morning, you don't go out half dressed do you? Why in the world would you leave with your wheels half dressed? Broken or missing caps? Come on, we can do better than that. 1A Auto sells these and they're really easy to take care of. What happens to these poor guys is they tighten them up too much and they break them and then they end up falling off.

1A Auto sells them all new in, sets of five or sets of 20; you'll never have to let your car or your wheel go out half dressed again. Very easy.

What you want to do is put them on carefully. Put them on with your hand first and make sure they thread correctly. Then use your 19 mm socket I believe you should be able to see that 19 mm pretty well. Then, you just put them on by hand, then you get them, it takes about two or three turns and you feel, and then you tighten. Then, you stop there, not too tight and not too loose.

Personally, if I take my car to the tire shop, I actually take these off beforehand so that those guys can't get a hold of them and use their impact wrenches on them and break them again. That's it, and that's a nice dressed wheel.

Now to recap—no pun intended—go to 1AAuto.com and get some new caps. Put them on, and your wheels will be glad you did.
