Default Help With Dust Caps

I have a 2006 RWD Ranger Sport Supercab. I need "end caps" (dust caps) for the center of the wheels.I have P235/70/R16 tires.

I saw some on Amazon-says fits 54mm. Is this mine? I looked at the Q&A and reviews-no help.

I need these so I can make my nephew more jealous than he is now with just an e-mailed pic! He has wanted to buy a Ranger Supercab in the worst way.

He will be over Sept 22nd.

so you need a wheel center cap or the little dust cap that goes in the end of the hub?

Go to a junk yard or Ford dealer.

No need for junkyard or dealer... Dorman makes them, they are in the "Dorman HELP!" section of almost any auto parts store for about $3.50 each. Usually with the cotter pins and other random oddball parts. I know for a fact Advanced auto and Autozone carry them. I replace them every time I do brakes. Ford has used the same dust caps on their rear wheel drive stuff for like 70 years. My 65 mustang uses the same ones as my 09 ranger...


Edit - Looked them up for you, dorman part number 13973 for the generic or 618-503 for the exact OEM style. The generic ones are what you'll find in the auto parts store cheap. That's what I've always used. I honestly have no idea what the real difference is they both look identical.
