Default Center cap question

I just put a set of 15" chrome factory wheels on hardbody. They didn't come with center caps. My question is which center caps do I need and how do they attach?

Those will work. Take those tabs sticking out of the center cap and place them between the lug nuts. Then rotate the caps to wedge the tabs under the lug nuts.

They are a bitch to remove and put on without some serious hand strength. I absolutely hated having to remove and install mine. Exactly as 'bama said, push in and rotate under the nuts to lock in and reverse for removal.
