Default I like my wheels, but......

..they're flying apart! My '01 XLT has the original wheels - steel with a chrome fascia and chrome hubs. After 17 years of service, they've finally lost their grip. Two hubs have flown off and I caught a third one that was about to let loose. Now a fascia has come loose. I know that someone out there has solved this problem. HELP!

Captain Obvious says replace the wheels.

I'd take a trip to the JY. Lots of inexpensive choices there usually.
