The Tundra OE style extending/telescoping tow mirrors are $175 for the pair on Amazon.
They were $115 each from discountautomirrors.com when I ordered mine in 2011.
The OE lights fit into the aftermarket mirrors when they need to be replaced.

If twisting does not completely work. Try reversing the twist. That produces a different air flow around the strap.

Problem Solved

Thanks to all who posted with ideas.

I took the foam idea and was going to use some pipe insulation, but then at the last minute also grabbed a couple of those flat fold can cookies.

Put two of those between the strap and the door. No strap noise.

Those worked perfectly and no worries about any black rubber marking up the car paint.

PS these mirrors are really great. Husband says that the convex spots are really REALLY great. We got them for both sides.

I opted for a foam pad between the strap and the car door. I used a section of float from an old child's flotation vest, but pipe insulation will work as well. I kept losing the pads so I've employed a couple of Kirby grips to hold them in place. Cheap? Me?

McKesh Mirror strap noise-Fixes?

I found that small Velcro ties, looped around the upper and lower segments of the strap, stopped the vibration. I leave them on all the time.Click image for larger version
