    Ive always been a HUGE Bowtie man. Neon signs in the shop, a 8'x4' sign outside my shop that said Bowtie symbol RACING, the whole nine yards. My last truck was a '10 2500 Silverado and on the way home from work one morning i was side swiped from a kid driving to school. We were both okay but both vehicles totalled. I didn't know what I wanted to buy next, Chevy hadnt changed much at the time and I hated Dodge and disliked Ford. I seen this '08 Tundra X-SP with TRD package and loved the blue color with factory 22"TRD rims. I asked to test drive the truck and they took my info and gave me the keys without a chaperone. Holy sh*t, no chaperone i thought to myself...this is gonna be a fun introduction to a Tundra. Did i mention the TRD supercharger? Yea, it has it. I'm not going to bore you with all the details but i just got my insurance check that was just shy of what they wanted for this Tundra, when i bought the Silveraldo in 2010 I put 50% down so it was almost paid off and this was almost 4 years ago today. I rolled back in the dearlership with the tires dn near still smoking and said those three magical words every man loves to say, I'LL TAKE IT!! I've been a fan ever since.

    Btw, i have a question and I know this isn't the sub forum for this but I am missing a center hubcap courtesy of Tire Kingdom 6 months ago. Where do i go to advertise for one? Toyota stopped making these rims some years ago.

    See if @Roman or @TRDSparks can find it. If not, check around tire places

    You might want to have them turn the place upside down if they lost the center cap in their shop. Those center caps are discontinued.

    They were on when i left but didnt check them myself. By the next day I noticed one missing. They are a snug fit but not a tight fit so this technician might have just gently pushed it in
