Default What is the center cap size for...

... the wheels on my 94 SSEi? I got them form an early 90s Cadillad deVille. Is this a standard hub cap size?

I think they're the same center cap size the ones from this 1993 Oldsmobile Achieva

Where might I find some center caps of the same size so I can make my own and no longer have pure Cadillac wheels? I would like to make some Pontiac logos or even have a laser-engraved SUPERCHARGED like the earlier supercharged Bonnevilles had on their front doors.

I cant guarentee these will be the same, but when I got replacement center caps for my Park Avenue, they just had a black vinyl decal for the Buick logo. You could take that off and have a smooth chrome finish ready for anything.

Wow, thanks for the link! They look like they're an exact match, mounting clips and all. This is great. Now that I know of another car with these, I know what to look for at a junkyard. However, those with the vinyl black seem to be exactly what I was looking for. Oh, the price!

Thanks, Haro! Your amazing response time has once again saved me from much searching in the dark.

I'm 100% sure that the black vinyl ones are going to be aftermarket versions only. The real Buick ones are actually molded chrome with the Buick logo.

I took some measurements of the Buick rim I have sitting here.

Remember that my measurement is 1" off so it lines up perfectly at the 1" mark

Very cool. Thanks again! I'm going to thaw one of my wheels tomorrow and take a measurement. This is really helpful!
