Hello,

I want to put a set of Buick rims on my coupe, I know I need the 5 on 5 bolt pattern but does anyone know if 15 x 7 will fit? and if there is a Caddy center cap out there that will retro fit to the Buick wheel

thanks:)

15x7 will fit just fine. I do not believe there is a caddy center cap that will fit on. I'd get buick centers and get a caddy decal (guys have had them made for the impala ss rims) and stick it over the buick emblem.

When I bought my 74 Fleetwood in 79 it had the Buick wheels on it. The PO had taken the Riviera caps, painted the centers black, and mounted Cadillac "wreath and crest"s in them with speednuts on the posts.

Wow...that car was only 5 years old when it was that "pimped out"?

The wheels were added later. Another reason why, even though they are not to my taste in Cadillacs today, I feel they are historically significant today. You could go to a dealership and pick one of these off the lot with no miles on it!
