Wheels and winter tires..

First snow has come and the winter tires are on.. Got the wheels and tires from the p o (I bought the truck this summer). Anyone know what brand the wheels are and is something missing? We just thought that the hubs and nuts are unprotected from salt, gravel, snow etc.. The wheels with the summer tires has the plastic that cases the nuts and hubs in.. (last pic)

Don't know what brand wheel those are, but there may be some ID markings on backside. They may or may not have available hub covers. As for the lug nuts, we just use anti-sieze paste on the lug nut studs, makes spring change back to summer tires a breeze. But yea, anything exposed will likely get rusty on the outside. Harry

The lug nuts stay exposed, but you're missing the center caps for the wheels.
