replacement center cap bolts/screws

Recommended Posts

its been rather sunny lately and i thought id put the 20s back on and give the chrome one last ride, besides, the Toyos only have 20-25k miles on them anyways. chrome has started going bad but its not too noticeable. but the center cap bolts/screws are rusted and ill need new ones. first, whats the proper name for these? second, where to get them at an affordable price and possibly color choices? and rust resistant?

Nope? Just get the proper threading and you will be fine. Just holds the center cap on correct?

anyone know of a site that sells center caps? 2 of my black inserts have snapped off where the bolt attaches. and a few others are slightly cracked.

had some bolts come in some time ago. already used half of the left bottom baggy on the center cap itself on the back side. the other left one is for the rim, front of cap. and the right one is for the center.

finally got the seized bolt and broken easy-out tip out of the rim. redrilled bigger and inserted threaded brass with loctite. redrilled proper size and tapped.

Very very small amount of antisieze on the threads. Mine dont have any rust on them but I also remove them multiple times though out the year, I would venture to say upwards of 5 times. Twice to swap from winter to summer set up.
