Hyundai Accent Hub Caps
If you own a car, you take pride in how it runs and its visual appeal. Hub caps play an important role in how your Hyundai Accent model sedan functions and looks. In fact, one of the easiest ways to upgrade the look of your Accent is to install new hub caps.What is a wheel cover?
A wheel cover is the same thing as a hub cap. They are both functional and aesthetic. Wheel covers were created to keep grime, dirt, and other road debris away from your brakes and hub assembly, therefore protecting it. However, they also hide unsightly parts such as the wheel itself and the lugnuts. They can even be customized to your preferences for more visual appeal.Do you measure your old hubcap to find the size?
You do not need to measure your old Hyundai Accent hub caps in order to find what size you need. In fact, you do not need to measure anything. You simply need to look at the tires on your Hyundai Accent. There you will notice a number such as P175/65/R17. The last number in this set represents the size wheel cover you need in inches. In this case, you would need a 17-inch hubcap. However, most Hyundai Accent vehicles require a 14-inch or 15-inch wheel cover. Be sure you purchase the right size so that your wheel covers fit and stay correctly in place.What kind of hubcaps do you need?
