Like pizza pan smooth wheel covers? Yes, I do, but mine are flat.

Maybe you could set it up with some Dzus button fasteners...

The pizza pans are flat except where they curve at the edges. I'd like to fasten them at the edges so the middle of the pan doesn't distort. I don't want to drill holes or do anything irreversible to the wheel. I don't want to spend $20 to fasten a $4 pan to a wheel. I have been thinking about Dzus for a belly pan application, but I don't think it's right for the pan caps.

How about...zip ties and wheel weight clips?

I had looked at converting wheel weight clips without the lead and use that as a basis to attach the pan to. If you weld some extensions on there, you could probably zip tie the pans to those. Easy to remove the pan by clipping the tie.

Would there be that significant of a decrease by just having lug nut holes?
I would still think the overall smoothness of the wheel would be way better.
Maybe use some plastic plugs to cover the lug nut holes?

This would allow a 'more permanent' mounting of the pans. I read the 'over engineered' post and started thinking...
What if a pizza pan goes flying off at 75MPH? That's gotta be deadly to whatever it hits.

Also started thinking about the 20" wheels on my Ram.
I don't believe I've seen a pizza pan big enough to cover them!

Please don't confuse over-engineered with safe. They're two completely different, usually opposite things.

There's a reason that just about everyone here has followed the K.I.S.S. principle in our endeavors: It works. Well.

Why not just get the rim clips off old hubcaps, or mount the pizza pans to such old hubcaps, which are designed to fit on the wheels and stay on. Plenty of history over decades of happy hubcap applications to draw from.
