Default Lug nut covers

I recently bought a Blazer with factory rims. And in true Chevy style it has the same plastic lug covers on it that I give my roommate such a hard time about. Any recommendations on what to do about these? I am missing about 5 of them and I want all of them to match. Should I just buy 20+ (incase a few more come off) plastic covers and put new ones on all the lugs or buy the chrome alternatives? Do the chrome ones look sharp? Thanks for your opinions.

If you just don't want to deal with them, get some different lug nuts.

If you have a wrecking yard that does tires near by they usually have a bucket of them, they may just give you a hand full. Worst case just take a walk down the chevy row and pick a few off the the lugs that are still there.

If you don't like messing with them, you can pick up a set of McGard lug nuts in a variety of finishes and configurations. The size you need is M12x1.5. On my Bonneville, I bought the black acorn style lugs so that my winter rims didn't have naked nuts.

You don't have them as your rims have center caps that cover the lug nuts. For those rims that have exposed lug nuts, GM has small caps that thread onto the outside of the lug nuts to dress them up a bit. Instead of just putting on acorn style lugs in either chrome or black, they put on these little covers.
