What are Hubcaps and do i need them?

Hubcaps are the decorative covers that are placed over the central portion of a vehicle’s wheels. They are typically made of plastic, aluminum or steel and are designed to provide protection to the wheel hub, lug nuts and bearings from dust, dirt and other debris.

While hubcaps can add a stylish touch to a vehicle, they are not essential for its proper functioning. However, they can help to protect the wheels and prolong their lifespan by shielding them from debris, and also improve the aerodynamics of the vehicle by reducing drag.

If you prefer the appearance of your vehicle with hubcaps and want to protect your wheels, then they may be worth considering. However, if you don’t care about the aesthetics or protection, then you may not need them.
