    I'm currently running said wheels(color:grey); looking to do something with my center caps. I have never liked that "8" in the center as it looks cheesy and out of place. I've seen some people run those "TRD" center caps. I guess I am curious as to if anyone else running these has removed the 8 or simply put a sticker over...or replaced the whole center cap. All input appreciated...Thanks guys.

    I have found these which I do think will work

    These look to be closer in color...

    Everybody just takes acetone and removes the 8 logo, replaces it with a TRD sticker from eBay vinyl sellers.

    They definitely look better on black than grey. But I think silver on grey also looks better than the "8". Where did you purchase the caps? Someone shared a link on here awhile back, I saw them as low as $8 each. I'm looking now and they are all $15+

    I'll have to look, I think they were originally for the FJ cruiser wheels.

    Acetone and ebay trd stickers worked for the first 4 wheels of mine, but the 5 (purchased later) the acetone wouldn't fully remove the 8 and just started to remove the paint. Just need to work on getting another cap and try again I guess.

    They are offered in both sizes. However, his look like 17"s.
