Angry Impala Plastic Lug Nut Covers

Have a 2003 Impala. Rotated the tires and ruined 2 more plastic lug nut covers. Probably tightened them to much or to aggressive removing them.
Anyways, visited the friendly GM dealer today to buy 4 more of them.
Part #09595118. Guess how much? $4.00 a piece! Cost $16 plus tax for 4 of these cheap plastic covers!! Unbelievable! I need 2 more, so will cost me $24 for these lug nut covers. If I didn't live in the snow belt, think I would just leave them off. Have to check NAPA and AutoZone and see if anybody makes a generic replacement. This must be a common part on a lot of GM cars.
What a rip-off!!!

I would bet a newer junkyard would have quite a few of them.

I would try some salvage yards.

Bet you'll be more careful with them from now on.

Go to your local auto parts store,any place that carries the Dorman line of parts will have them.Also Dorman has a web site if you want to look up the part #.

Re: Impala Plastic Lug Nut Covers

just get rid of them and spend $30 on some good quality aftermarket chrome lug nuts- you know, like you use on your old car when putting a set of aftermarket wheels on it.
