Will My Order Come With Center Caps, Lugs, And TPMS Sensors?

If the wheels are made with center caps, they will be included with your purchase - ask if you aren’t sure! Chrome lug sets are $45 (free shipping if ordered with your wheel purchase) and include all the lugs needed, 4 locking lugs with key, and 4 chrome valve stems with chromies.

Be careful when comparing to places that offer free lugs, as they often don’t include the extra stuff in our premium set (locking lugs, valve stems, and chromies).

When installing the wheels, lugs should be hand-torqued in a star pattern. Do not use power tools as they can cause damage to the lugs or studs.

TPMS sensors are available for an additional cost. For wheel and tire packages, the price includes free installation of the sensors before shipping. Please note that some vehicle models or sensors may require a re-programming process to sync with the new sensors. This can be done fairly easily by an auto dealer or repair shop.

I’m just looking for center caps. Can you help?

Check out our Accessories Store to find replacement center caps, risers, open caps, and more!

If you can’t find what you’re looking for and you originally purchased your set of wheels through our store, reach out to us using the Contact Us Form. Include a detailed description of the center cap and the wheel with your submission. If you have any wheel part number, be sure to include this as well.

We'll reach out to the manufacturer for pricing and availability after verifying your original order details.

What is TPMS?

TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. It is a small device that is fitted on the inner surface of your wheel, inside your tire, that monitors tire inflation at all times. It activates a warning light on your dashboard if your tires are over or under inflated.

How do I sync my TPMS?

TPMS should sync up to your vehicle automatically after about 50 miles of driving but, like most technology, you may need to manually sync your sensors. To do this, we recommend heading over to a reputable wheel/tire shop that should be equipped with the proper tool. We do not recommend going to a dealership as oftentimes they do not have the equipment to read aftermarket sensors. If you need a replacement TPMS feel free to Contact Us using the Order Support topic for further assistance.

How do I tell if TPMS were installed?

Simply check the valve stems! A black rubber sleeved valve stem with a gold valve under the cap would indicate there are TPMS installed. (see Picture #1 below)

If your wheels/tires came equipped with a chrome sleeve valve stem, this would indicate there is no TPMS installed. (see Picture #2 below)

Why did I receive open lugs with my order?

If you ordered closed lugs and received open lugs, we likely updated your order based off the center cap on your wheel. If a lug covering center cap can’t be properly installed with closed lugs, our warehouse will ship the package with open lugs.

Why did I receive chrome lugs with my order?

If you ordered black lugs and received chrome lugs, your order was likely updated to the chrome lugs because your wheel has a center cap that fully covers the lugs. Please reach out to us using the Contact Us Page if you plan on running the wheels without caps or would prefer black lugs.

What is the difference between lug nuts and lug bolts?

Lug nuts and lug bolts are two completely different things, and the difference between the two is very important when it comes to buying an aftermarket option. Lug nuts get threaded onto existing lug nut studs and are typically found on Domestic and Japanese import cars. Lug bolts are very common with European cars and they are a complete bolt that threads into the hub of the vehicle instead of a nut that goes onto a bolt.

Don't know which to order? Our experts will select the correct lug nut or bolt based on the vehicle information provided!

Will the center cap work with my manual hubs?

Each set of wheels includes standard center caps (with very few exceptions). These standard, closed center caps will not typically fit over large, manual hubs. Depending on the wheels, the manufacturer may offer larger caps, open caps, or cap extenders at an additional cost. Please reach out to us and we will work with the manufacturer to find out your options.

Are spacers safe?

Yes, spacers are considered safe as long as they are measured accurately, installed correctly, torqued properly, and checked regularly.

For more information, check out our Spacers & Adapters Guide.

Do I need hub rings?

The hub bore is the opening in the center of the wheel that goes onto the hub of the car. Most wheels are mass produced, which is why the hub bore is usually larger to accommodate as many vehicles as possible.

When there is a larger gap between the hub bore and the hub, hub rings might be needed to center the wheels while tightening the lugs. If there is a vibration problem, it is recommended that you use hub rings, also known as centering rings or hub centric rings.

These rings are typically hard plastic and, once the lugs are tightened, they no longer serve a purpose and will spin freely. It is possible to get vibrations if the wheel is centered properly even when the wheels and tires are completely balanced
