The wheel covers on my SE rattle alot, and are really noisy and annoying (everyone can hear me coming). the nuts on the covers are all tight. Any way to make them quiter (short of buying new wheels)?

Thanks in advance :-)

Get some of that foam or sponge rubber weather strip and put it on the inside of the hubcap.

mine did the same exact thing when i first got my car, i could hear my car comin down the street a mile away, we just took em off and put them on different spots, and gave them a good tightened and they went away and no more problems.

Thank you for the replies. I will try switching them and if that does not work, I will try a little foam.

Have a great day!
