Talking HELP, searching for a wheel cap.

Looking for a wheel cap for our Buick. It is 2 1/8 inch so I would take any thing with good retainer clips. Ford, GM (other models) Chrylser I can make work too.



Normally the only time these caps are removed is when balanceing tires and wheels on a bubble machine.
But I got lazy when painting The wheels and poped them off rather than masking them.




One clip broke on one when I was putting them back together so it will not stay in place.

So if you can help with even just a retainer I will be happy to pay a fee and shipping.

The summit retainer is for a Rivera and is different than mine. Had to laugh how ever as I guess the order is sent to CHINA by row boat since the retainer will not even ship till November 11th. Then a slow row boat to get back to the USA will get it here about next Easter.


E Bay link, 10 pages and not one page for the 2 1/8 inch LaSaber wheel caps. All the smaller 1 7/8 inch caps for the smaller 14 and 15 inch wheels.

I have been doing goggle searches useing several different terms since the retainer broke.

I have been diving in barrels and dumpsters at salvage yards and some so bad you needed to make sure your tenis shots were up to date, only rated the term JUNK yards.

Last place I went diving I was told that I should ask on the inter net in case some one has one or more laying in a junk box in the garage.

Thank you all just the same.
