"WILL WORK ON ANY WHEEL CAPS JUST PUT A 1/4 INCH BOLT THRU YOUR CAP AND SCREW SPINNERS ON." Quote the seller of the spinners.

You'd have to have the centers for the wheels to put your bolt through, and they'd stick way out there. I guess those are real Cadillac wire wheels, eh? I doubt I'd want to put some cheezeball aftermarket spinners on those pretty wheels, but I guess they've sold a lot of those spinners over the years to people who like them better than me. :)

To be honest I like the spinners even if they are aftermarket. The fact that they'll stick out makes me think that I can pop tires with them and such making my car more dangerous. :lildevil: Anyway, I'm wondering if I can slide a really big washer down the wheel's center to hold the spinners in place.... Just maybe.... Any thoughts?

Those will work. I had the same ones on my 77 Fleetwood

Killer, did they stick out really far?

They look like theyd stick out as far as the normal ones. Or at least they don't look any bigger except for the 3 wings.

Hey Brougham, I also found the correct centers on eBay but they're just the maroon background with two holes in them. The Cadillac crest that fits there is it the same one off the C-Pillars?

I think they look bigger but I don't know. The rims are here but the car is in storage so I can't see the ones on the pillar to know for sure.

I lost the spinners on eBay so I intend to just get the normal centers. I just gitta figure out what goes in the center of that maroon background and what the two holes are for....Brougham, The centers on your rim, is the crest exposed, or is it behind a clear plastic?
