Jim.... I've got a solution to your problems.
If you can't get the Pontiac symbol off the center caps, and you can't find/make an Olds/Aurora cap....

Put the rims on a Pontiac.... like mine
Problem solved

hehe.... sorry... couldn't help it...

Do you have a close up pix of what the center cap looks like? (off the rim)

Jim,

Here is an example of what I was talking about. Granted, these are for Buicks, but you can start looking for places that have emblems for roras or that will make something custom.

I have the same wheels but mine are white, I'm interested in looking for a set of 4 with the gold lettering that says antilocking brakes on it like the factory ones. 3 of mine are worn down but one still looks good.
