Arrow 16" Aero Wheel Covers

I have three 16” stainless steel aero discs for use with 16” plain steel rims. I bought these to maximize my car’s fuel economy, especially on the highway where aerodynamics is most important.

The covers:

The car:

It was when I had these on was when I got the best highway fuel economy EVER with my 2006 Honda Civic … 47.4 mpg on one thankful last year. Before I took them off the last time, I lost one which is why I have only 3 to sell.

The covers are in good condition … they were in use about 2 ˝ years before I switched to alloys. They have some scuffs and dimples in the metal but still look good.

I want $50 for all three, not including shipping and handling charges. We’ll have to work out the S&H. brorjace@hotmail.com

Are you selling them only because you lost one? Maybe you could buy a single wheelcover somewhere?

Too bad my wheels are 15"...

Piwoslaw,
I lost one, replaced it and lost it again (I suspect something was up with that wheel).

I'm switching to alloys in a month or so.

Same thing has happened to me in the past. Always the front passenger wheel of my FWD, so I gave it up. My theory is that it has to do with the "physics" of my FWD Saturn S-Series.

That's funny cfg83, in my case, I think it was a funky rim ... and it was on the rear. I never had a problem with my front rims.

A poster here used a dab of Goop or liquid nails on the spots where the grippers touch the rim and he said they stayed on and were quieter (no squeaking).

But I already bought alloys and they're going on the Civic next month so I'm looking to get something for my remaining discs.
