I have taken delivery of 4 genuine Toyota Steel Rims (16") with Hub Cap Clips. (Thanks Darcy!)
A couple of the Clips are broken and need replacing.
I want to keep them as original as possible.
Can anyone advise as to where I can source replacement Clips/Rivets?

find a used 15" steel rim... they use the same clips afaik
Good idea but I believe any wheels with hub cap clips are rare in Australia. Might find someone in the US who have some bad wheels to remove the clips and mail them across the pond. Haven't Used cold rivets since the seventies but thing there still used be around. Install with a air hammer and backup bar on the other side to mushroom the rivet.

Yes you are correct. Wheels with Clips are very hard to find here in Australia.
If anyone out there has some?, I would be keen to purchase.

I guess if you just need a few it's a good option. If you were trying to convert non hub cap to hub cap wheels and could use 15" for the price of six used clips you could buy a OEM disc brake wheel new.

Andy let me know if you are still looking for these clips? They do surface here every now and then. I will keep an eye.
