There is a procedure to install 3M insulator tape on the inside of the wheel cover to prevent contactin noise, either a squeak or click. On the indside of each cover, install a piece of this tape on either side of the spoke area on the outer edge of the cover. while the covers are off, also lok for a stone caught between the cover and the wheel while you have them off.
