Are you sure they offered these on our Pontiac's. They look like Bonneville wheel covers and if they were American issue, the rims were different. Our rims were Chev 14 inch rims and the mounting might be different for the wheel covers. I would ask the relevant questions before you buy them. Cheers.

I have no idea if they were officially offered, but as it is always the case, you could order pretty much anything you wanted through the dealerships.. in fact, since American models were also available in Canada, I dont see why their parts wouldnt.

They were not Bonneville caps, they were optional caps for all series, they are just more often seen on Bonneville. Also, the larger US rims were also 14 inches, and the cap mounting is the same. They will fit my Parisienne.

 

Finally , I think they look great, and I want a set. I will keep the original caps safely somewhere, but I want to run those spinners.

 Yes i know they were both 14 inch but different rims had different ways of mounting the actual wheel covers, they were not ALL the same in general. Cheers and good luck.

I know rims are not ALL the same, thanks. In this case, the spinner caps were available as an accessory on any model in the US, on cars that would otherwise come with the standard caps which I have now. The wheelcovers mount the same way, and customers did not have to order a complete set of different rims to install these optional wheel covers. I found a set on a facebook message board, so Ill be ok.
