Hello Big Jimbo:

I have seen hub caps at many of the truck stops, the only thing you need to do is count the number of tabs on the hub and then find the correct hub cap. They are not very expensive I think about $5.00 each. Good luck on your search.

Thanks Dave,

I will be really amazed if these are only five bucks. This is about a 8-10 inch cap in the center of the wheel.

Dave is correct--ok--maybe 6 bucks in Cal. Think the 4-tab cap is what fits Vs 6-tab. These caps are close to OEM in looks and you cant beat the price, especially since your next replacement is only a bump away. I am told a bit of auto molding adhesive [or other similar "stick-em-up"] on the tabs will help guard against bumps. Now, if you want to pay more and get the best, I am sure one of our fellow traveller can point you to an OEM source.

I just bought one for my coach at a truck stop and it was about $6. Mine has the 6 tabs rather than the 4 though. They also have tons of those polished lug nut covers.

Lost mine a couple years ago. Looked all over in RF shops in Texas and found replacements ranging from $30 - $45 with a delivery that didn't meet my schedule. Stopped at a Pilot on the way home and found them (4 tab) for $5 so I bought two. Have since seen them in most FJ, Petro, Pilots etc. ranging from 5 - $6.

Big Jimbo,
when you get yours, make sure the "Keepers" that go on them are in the package. I bought one a couple of months ago and didnt notice that they were missing. when I went back about half the packages on the shelf didnt have them. bought mine at Flying J for about $5

I bought a few at FJ that were not the correct type. Knowing this going into it, I simply cut away a tab and part of another. Had to compress the "keepers" a bit as well.

They now fit like a glove and are VERY difficult to remove. I think they'll be around for a while.
