I am losing my center caps on my factory 20" wheels. It appears that the plastic is shrinking. I can pop them out with a flip of my fingernail. Thought I would let everybody know.

how cold does it get up there?....would make sense that the cold would be causing them to shrink.....down here the coldest it gets is like 40 at night....50 during the day.....but mostly only gets around 70 around this time....so i dont think id have this problem as well as other members in warm climates.

yes I figure that has a lot to do with it. It's going to be 18 tonight 25 right now. I've noticed that the 06 caps have a different back on them so maybe something is up that they know about.

I siliconed mine on a long time ago. My Dakota did the same thing but I did lose one and paid like $20 for a new one.
