Protection: Hubcaps provide protection to the wheel and hub assembly, preventing damage from debris and other road hazards, shielding the wheel from potential scratches, dings, and corrosion.
Aesthetics: Hubcaps enhance the overall appearance of a vehicle by covering the unsightly wheel and hub area. They come in various designs, finishes, and styles, allowing car owners to personalize their vehicle's look and make it more visually appealing.
Low cost: Hubcaps are made of plastic and generally more affordable than alloy or steel wheels. If a hubcap gets damaged or scratched, it can be replaced individually without having to replace the entire wheel, saving money in the long run.
Easy to install: Hubcaps are designed to be easily installed and removed. They usually snap onto the wheel, and don't require professional assistance or special tools.
Easy to clean: Hubcaps are relatively easy to clean. They can be easily removed for cleaning or inspection, allowing for better wheel maintenance and preventing the buildup of dirt and grime.
