2011-2016 RAM 3500 dually hubcaps

Does anyone out there have a hack for keeping these hubcaps from coming off? I have lost one front and two rears so far on my 2016 RAM 3500 Dually and they are not cheap. With shipping the two rears I just replaced cost me $263 total. They seem to go on the first time really tight, but over time you can feel them start to jiggle around a little. Does anyone glue them on with something like silicon glue, so you can still pry them off if you need to, or what is your hack? TIA

I always loose my DRW hub caps. I called the dealer for a replacement and he said they don't fall off they are stolen. He said it happens a lot. People usually only get one on the side away from the store you stop at so they can squat down and pry it off out of sight. The quote I got was $160 a piece. So I pulled my off and cleaned up the nuts and it doesn't look bad. I did find a generic replacement without the RAM logo that were only $70 a set of 4.

Nice black hardware on shiny aluminum works for me.

I thought they were stole as well, when we visited Hoover dam, because I noticed both were gone. But since I took photos of my RV at each resort, I saw one day after driving down this rough road, that one side of my truck had one on it, and the other did not. Then the next day I must have lost the second one going back up. I have noticed they start to rattle around, or start to come loose after time. Plus, you have to realize, why would people steal them, if they were not falling off in the first place? Another site told me to use a little silicon glue on the nuts when installing to keep them from vibrating off. You can get them on Amazon for $120 each

You could buy a Ford , but then you would have the opposite problem; can't get the rear hub caps off. I spent two hours in my shop trying to get one off; it would have been a nightmare on a busy road. Finally fabricated a contraption I saw on-line to pull them off with a ratchet strap.

Make sure the slot on the cap for the duel wheels is lined up with the nut before pushing them on. I have a full set of caps off a 2013 ram DRW. There not chrome and there a little scratched up but they do the job if someone needs them. 100 dollars plus shipping for front and back. I have pics to show if needed.
