Have been trying to figure out something to make my SS wheels buick wheels for months, thought about stickers...figured they would fall off so did not want to do that.  Have read many posts and there doesn't seem to be any buick caps that fit.  Saw a few custom ones that look real nice but don't have the time or patience. so after many hours of searching ebay this is what I came up with



It is the emblem from 2000 buick century tail light, the crome ring and tri shield are raised, it fits perfectly in place of the impala logo. I removed the impala logo and used trim adhesive to attach the tri shield.



I now have a set of 4 factory looking Roadmaster GS wheels bounce

Sorry for the fuzzy pictures phone would not focus on all 4

Thanks guys, if the 3M trim glue holds anything like the factory glue(silicone) I think it would be more likely to loose the whole wheel
