Unhappy 2008 Tacoma Wheel Stock Ornament problem

Hi everyone =) I had my 2008 Taco in for a regular service and when they rotated the tires they screwed up somehow with the wheel ornaments,. 2 of them feel off while driving about a week later and then I had to pay $130 bucks for 2 new ones and they won't stay on either, is there a way to make them stay on? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanx.

Probably TPMS but who the hell knows....


I swear kids in college need to major in English instead of liberal arts. You can work anywhere and get paid good if you can communicate. These days no one knows how to even ask a simple question.

My center caps snap in and haven't moved since they were installed. I've got over 70k miles and about 15 tire rotations and they've never come loose.

Last time I took mine in for a free service three of the four center caps were not installed correctly. Luckily I changed to my off road tires & wheels before they fell off.

silicone the tabs before installing them then let them cure. they can still come off but you will need force. my trd caps are held on like this. super loose, but with silicone I can rub a tree and crack the cap and they still stay on.

I keep a rubber mallet in my storage bin in the bed. Every time I have my truck serviced or tires rotated/balanced, etc, I get it out & tap on them before I leave. I started doing this after the dealer lost 1 at my 5k service, then another after the 10k service. Both times the dealer replaced the missing one since I went right back.
