Default Looking for metal ring on center caps

I bought aftermarket center caps because I lost one, but the new ones didn't come with the metal retention rings. Are they called something else? I can't find them online.

Most of the aftermarket caps don't come with the expander/tension rings, they just press in and the tension on the plastic tabs holds them in place. Also allows them to fall out too, unfortunately. But so long as you got the right size, they should be fine. If they're loose, sorry, out of luck. If you're putting them on factory wheels, just order the Nissan ones. They never fall out.

Do you, or anyone, know if the 35th Anniversary wheels took the same center caps as as all other 2005s?

Sífar as I recall, all Nissan OE wheels - EXCEPT Track V1 wheels - use the same cap. Measure first though. 54mm is the factory center hole measurement.

OE caps are available for something like $15/SET on EBay, donít bother with the used ones for $10 each which have lost some/all of their tension.
