Default Hubcaps on the Bonne

Hey All........I've been thinking about getting some new hubcaps for my 97 SE. Right now all I have are the stock hubs that cost $35 a piece to replace. Have any of you seen anything from Walmart, Autozone, or someplace else that would look good on a Bonneville?

Hahaha i dunno man, i have some on mine right now....They are so ghetto. but hey, atleast they're Chrome! (plated) hahaha
Nothing too flashy though, look at a JcWhitney catalog....they have lots to choose from.
Walmart has very few to select from and tons of people already have them.

Yeah, they had some at Ames, before it closed, that I saw on soooo many cars. Pepboys here as a very good selection. I bought some 5 spoke chrome covers for my first car, a 1986 Celebrity. It was black and looked pretty sweet all waxed with the hubs.

Unfortunately I rubbed against a curb and scraped the chrome off the plastic! I was bad and cleaned them all up and returned them.

I know, I know....but that was years ago!! I wouldn't do it again

I had those 72 spoke hub caps on my Celebrity before I got the chromes. They were a PITA to clean! Even harder than my ghetto gold rims now.
