Wheel name?

I was wondering if someone here could help me identify these wheels. Friend of mine tells me they're rare, any insight? Does anyone know where I can find a Pontiac center cap for them? Thanks!

The rare ones to my knowledge are 8 lug wheels. Look at the center cap from www.amesperf.com part number PT144 but check with them before buying it.

Do you know the year and model? I am not familiar with the factory wheels for old buicks.

I knew they were Buick wheels and the center caps kind of give it away as well. I believe they used them in a 5x5 bolt pattern on some of the big bucks as well as the 5 x 4.75 you have the link listed for.

As far as a pontil center, the complete cap may not fit the wheel the same way as a Buick cap. At worst, or easiest, you can measure the center diameter and and some Pontiac replacement emblems and place just the center sections.
