PostSubject: Center caps   Sat Sep 17, 2016 3:30 pm

I got 2 sets of centers here for my SS wheels i got on buick for time being. Have set of the factory big nut lookin caps and set of venture centers. Did gm make a buick wheel that had similar sized cap to the SS or venture? Im waitin on set of custom emblems for the SS wheels but if theres somethin else i might try find em just to have options.

I know this is an old post but I don't see any replies.

I too have SS rims. I do not see any Buick centers the same size. I went online where a lot of wheel centers were being sold and found many Buick. None were the same size as the SS.

We all went through this back in the day. No factory Buick caps fit. Chose a Chevy cap you like, and get a Buick decal made.

I was getting sets made and selling them last year, but the print shop tried to raise my pricing, so I stopped making them.   Need to find another shop to run off some more.   Folks that I sold them too really loved them..

I bought universal domed decals from eBay for $10 for my FWD Impala wheels on my Century. The caps are exactly the same:

The centers from the simulated wire wheels covers are the perfect size, but you have to break off the retaining tabs and epoxy them on. They used to be available as a separate part number for the covers. Haven't checked the NOS situation lately.

The advantage is that they are the 3-D tri-shield emblem used on the factory wires.
