5.5″ tall, Stainless Steel. These top-quality front axle covers are engineered to fit most popular axles. Axle covers protect your axles from dirt, debris, and moisture, prolonging the life and appearance of your truck. Available for hub-piloted applications only.
Class 7 and 8 truck wheels attach to the axle and hub in one of two ways: Hub-Piloted and Stud-Piloted. Aluminum wheels are typically hub-piloted, and steel wheels are typically stud-piloted. When determining which product to select for your application, it is important to correctly identify the type of wheel and the method of installation for your wheels for a secure and accurate fit.
Hub-Piloted – Products designated for hub-piloted wheels typically have 10 lug holes. 5 of the holes are 1″ in diameter to fit over the lug bolt only, and 5 lug holes are 1.88″ in diameter and are sized to slip over the existing lug nuts without removal.
Stud-Piloted – Products designated for stud-piloted wheels typically have 10 lug holes. 5 of the holes are 1.25″ in diameter and have a slight taper that conforms to the shape of the lug nut. The other 5 lug holes are 1.75″ in diameter and are sized to slip over the existing lug nuts without removal.
Stainless Steel – Stainless Steel is available in many different quality grades, and while they are all referred to collectively as stainless steel, only the highest grades of stainless steel exhibit true rust-proof behavior. Additionally, only the highest quality steels have a brilliant mirror finish, which is an indication of the quality of the surface polish and ability to reflect light. 304-grade stainless steel has the highest nickel and chromium content, which makes it one of the few true stainless steel varieties. American Chrome is proud to manufacture quality products in 304-grade stainless steel.
