If you are missing 2 and still have 2, take one off and look for a part number..

Also posting a pic would help..

I know certain regional optional parts can only be bought by certain region area dealerships.
For instance, I try to buy all my OEM parts from @ToyotaOfCoolSprings but sometimes I need parts only available to gulf state dealers.

I needed a TSS wheel center cap and Roman can't order those.
I had to overpay for one from a local dealership.

I spent some time Sunday googling and checking eBay for your part number and found nothing.
Only thing I found is what you found about buying an entire wheel.
But I'm not even sure if you can find that.

Did someone steal your 2 missing caps?

Might be time to buy new wheels...

I lost them over time and I can’t believe that they are so hard to find. There has to be some out there somewhere. I wanna keep these so I guess I wait it out

I'll chime in because I suffered from missing just 1 cap. To save you time. This is it. All us hard core TRD guy's have exhausted all personal TRD Center caps out there. ( Unless a Top Secret stash price tag $5 K a piece is hiding. Which there isn't )
Ive even contacted Forged the makers of the 22'' Rims. And TRD with no help what so ever. Long story there....
I sold my 3 TRD Caps separate on Ebay. It was a Frenzy BIG TIME.. And I posted on Facebook for any machine shop to take this project on.
Everyone bowed out do to infringement rights ETC. I even personally walked a cap in and explained the build without the TRD stamp..
I did this not to make money's but to help us all held captive in these 22'' Rims no one wants without center caps.
Sure you can buy caps. But 4 Rims will follow on your price.. So now to dig farther into this.. This is what some of us die hard TRD 22'' Forged wheel guys came up with. Here is pictures of the center caps we have worked into our advantage.. Like it or not.

This is my very inexpensive project center cap. And I was able to use our measurements and reattach the snap clips. They attach exactly on the first ring of our Rims. It holds tight. Im working with the Polished nickel paint to match now cause Im a detail guy.. Yes these caps are plastic (T) caps you can buy everywhere and for cheap.. They were so cheap these 4 were given to me..

Yes. Ive even contacted the biggest center cap Co. on west coast. With no response. They are all limited. Classic vehicles can be found.

Makes sence to find a round cap and install the spring steel clips. I have not found anything with those I.D & O.D. Dimensions. And if you found one. You will have to build the anchor locations. Ive looked through all of Toyota vehicle center cap inventory. Their was a round Crowned cap but it didn't fit.. Do some research in your area. Let us know what you find.

On 2nd Gen.TRD 22'' (Im even reading TRD is holding their stock for insurance claims only.) And they want to get rid of our lug nuts. Lugs are still avalible to find but its getting tougher.

I don't mean to be the grey rain cloud. ''You never know your neighbor might have a few stashed and doesn't realize what they have ?

I'm friends with a lot of 22'' TRD wheel owners that just took it in the shorts and bought new rims.

Black Rhino makes a close look wheel.
I own 5 TRD 22''s. I was just about to dump them when I lost 1 cap in an area that just cant be found.
I did run into some hidden information TRD wouldn't relinquish about our 22'' TRD performance Wheels.

I don’t wanna give up on these yet. Maybe some will come up on eBay.I’m prob going to have these powder coated black so I’ll prob need the metal centers. But I’ve never seen a resent Toyota part like that impossible to find. I thought for sure they would be somewhat Easier to find on the west coast. I call ft Lauderdale FL Toyota thinking maybe had some left in stock. Nope
