    No

    If those caps have a steel band there the wrong caps

    They right one should have caps over 4 lug nuts.

    Nuts are right

    Will these lugs work with my 2000 or do I need to find different covers

    those caps don't look right for 2000 mounting , they are for something newer, the wheels are right for the time, but I think I remember a wire running around the tabs to hook on the lug nuts for 2000, not saying it wouldn't work , but ill bet lots those aren't for that year of wheels

    never mind I see your using stock rims...
    good luck on the caps.


    Next, make sure you have HUB-centric rims and not lug-centric.
    There shouldn't be a gap between the center of the rim and the bub on the truck.

    if you have lug centeric get some aluminum spacers,
    avoid the plastic ones.
