I found mine at an independent parts house that catered to the truck business. They were not as good of quality as the originals.

….need to know whether you have 4- or 5- tab hubs....the older 4-tabs are harder to come by....get the cheap chromed tin ones and you will never lose one; get the nice SS ones and one will be gone tomorrow....most truck stops or truck chrome shops will have them...
ps-help us help you....add your model of Alpine and year to your sig block...

I think my 2000ís are 6 tab. Three small tabs 3 large tabs.
Get mine in SS at the Iowa 80 Truck stop if I recall, $13. Cheaper ones are $7. Be sure to measure the depth of the hubcap tabs. IIRC it is 7/16. This might be it.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

Rancher1946, what Sco 70 ttie told you re: the place in Fl. is good. I've used them for hubcaps for my Alpine. And what Tom and Pattie said about depth, diam. and tabs is also right on.

Rancher 1946....Also, when you take delivery of new hubcaps, be sure to install the little spring steel clips on the edges of the hubcap tabs, and that will keep you from losing them.

Unless you drive the interstates in Indiana. I count on losing one a year at least. Last time I used silicone on them.....we'll see
