Just tried on 20" from 08 Tundra. Caps don't work on front but it all mounted . Upcoming long highway trip hopefully will give a better mpg than my daily KO2.

In this post he talks about using center caps from two different runs of LC to clear the grease cap. I have these tundra wheels:

Will any of the stock LC center caps clear the grease cap on my '06 or will I still need to beat the grease cap? Do the earlier center caps or later center caps have more clearance? I don't mind trimming the center cap but would like to avoid flattening the grease cap if possible.

I think I read through the whole thread and didn't get a straight answer. I may have missed it though.

I have these tundra wheels on my rig; as you are aware, some people smash the dust cap flat to fit the tundra caps.. I preferred to order some spacers to fix this and also get a better stance.

Has anyone ordered these? Seems much easier than hunting for OEM Steelies but also know Toyota quality is unmatched generally.



I tried to search but couldn’t find anything, sorry if this has been covered.

I picked mine up on Partsgeek. They're out of stock more than they aren't, but their price is nice. I've had them on two different trucks I wheel pretty hard with zero issues.

I had steelies on an FJ cruiser and honestly it just added weight and made it feel slower. Tundra wheels are so inexpensive on craigs and offer up that I don’t think it’s worth spending on new steelies if the true purpose is off road and snow.

Sorry if I’m late to the party on this reply. I managed to get the original caps on (from a 2000). I had to take off the ring that supports the edges from the inside out and bend one of edges inward. This let it fit in after smashing it a few times. They don’t look perfectly flush with the wheel but it does cover. I run winter tires on these.

On the other hand, I have the wheels on the top picture also (earlier model 5 spoke) and the original caps (from the 2000) fit much better. I also ordered the later caps from the 03+ and those look like they belong there without the old school cap from the 90’s.
