nice - there's a chance the caps from the sunbursts are the same size - might be worth checking.

Yeah, The ones from one of mine fit, but I can't remember which (yes I have 2 different styles of rims on my car) Do you have the sharper style or softer of the 15/16(?) spokes?

Then you probably have the 1st style of rim, the other ones have bigger holes/caps.

No I believe those were only on newer cars - he has an '87, which has the old bolt pattern, so they won't fit.

that's what I would have thought too, but he said the caps were too small, and the other ones are bigger...h/o let me go check

EDIT: the center caps from the older style (the more angular/sharp) rim should fit, I just went out and checked. What was on your car before?

the center caps off the ones in the back should work. I have the same ones in the back, but the even newer ones in the front ;)

Keep in mind that your car uses the post-88 bolt pattern, and although design is the same, the castings are different.

Which might mean a difference in the center caps they use. I don't know for sure, as I've never owned any of those type of wheels.

-yeah I was actually just thinking that actually.

I can run to the junkyard and pick some up if your mechanic doesn't have any, just let me know.
