Default Where to buy shiny wheel covers???

The dealer wants $320 for the covers. Does anyone know where I could get these? I thought it would be a cinch online, but nothing. In fact, ebay only had one standard cover for sale, not even four. I know there must be discounted saturn parts out there somewhere!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you have the part number (I believe the chrome wheel covers are actually treated as a Saturn accessory), try one of the various Saturn parts sites that discounts:

http://www.saturnaccessories.com/
http://www.saturnparts.net/
http://www.satpartswholesale.com/

and some others. They don't seem to list the chrome covers anywhere, but email/call any of them with the part number or just the description, and find out what their discounted prices are.

Could I use a generic 17" wheel cover found on ebay? I see some are listed as 17" wheel covers and then a majority are listed as a specific vehicle type. Would a 17" GM product most likely have the same lugnut pattern, size?

Not just any 17" GM product has the same bolt pattern. More specifically, what do you mean by "generic"? Like a random, aftermarket hubcap?

As far as these particular styled steel wheels with plastic faces, the only other GM vehicle with the same wheel size, pattern, etc. that MIGHT be similar as far as the cap/wheel design would be a Pontiac G6, but again, still different.

Maybe post an idea of what you're thinking or referring to.

From what it seems like to me, a lot of the '08 XE 2.4s are coming with the chrome covers, with the preferred package. (Not part of the package, but it seems like a common combo)
