Icon5 OEM Caps wont fit

How come my OEM caps wont fit on my OEM lugs of my 04 Ranger. I just got my Cragars Soft 8's on and these caps wont snap on to my lugs

They need to be on the truck...they snap on pretty hardcore. There will be about a 3/8" gap between the rim and the center cap...but you wont notice that. I continue to run that set up.


You running the factory goldish colored lugs?

What were your factory wheels? I know the Fx4 and the 16" 5spokes lugs and wheels aren't meant to accept the centercap.

EDIT:

You DO NOT have the proper lugs for the factory center caps...

So I put my softs 8's on today those 32's are killing my gas but I guess thats why I bought the Civic... I went to Napa and got the lugs it came to like $24 after taxes for all 20 and from the dealership it would have been $5 a lug.
