Default Newbie Needs Advice

Hello, all. I'm a relatively new owner. I bought my 2003 LE Cruiser in October. I love it. Unfortunately, so did the thugs who ripped off my wheel caps about 2 weeks ago.

Before I invest in replacing them, I wonder if anyone can tell me if there is such a thing as "lockable" wheel caps. If not, does anyone have any other replacement suggestions.

Thanks for any information you can share.

Welcome to the forum MYPT. Same answer as IRPT...haven't seen any! You do mean the center caps on each wheel right? I know someone else was looking for one that was lost (stolen)...don't think he found anyplace but the dealer and they wanted to rip him off with a high price for what they are. Sorry.

Years ago on another car, I found chromed brass "breasts" that had a flange at the bottom, inserted them from behind the wheel so the only way to put them on/off was to take off a wheel. Then, locking log nuts prevent anyone but you from getting at them.
