I changed my wheel to a newer wheel design, still a factory Ford Wheel but my center caps will not fit now. Looks like they are about 1/2 or so too shallow. Any thoughts or ideas on how to get a set that will work?

Depending on whether your truck came with Steel or Alloy wheels, the caps are designed for that wheel, not the lugs. I ran into this when I put OEM steelies on for winter wheels, the lugs were too long for the caps, I had to use a set of caps from the steel wheels.

The wheels came off of a 2018. The front centers for fine but the rear caps are about 1/2-3/4 of inch too short.

Mine came with alloys but the read hub sticks out further. I had 2.5” spacers on but I took them off.
