Identify my Rims!!

Greetings all,

After having a tire go out of round, I decided i wanted to find some rims that weren't 16.5's for old blue. Found this rim and tire set on craigslist for $900. brand new falken tires on some shiny chrome rims. The only problem is, i don't have any center caps.

Seller said they were Alcoa rims, but these rims look like the center cap snaps on the front, instead of pushing through the back, which the only thing i could find on the Alcoa website was push through style.

The rear hubs don't even look that bad without caps, but as you can tell, i need some for the front.

pics are below. and help is appreciated.

"OBS" = Older Body Style... vernacular from the later model guys.

.. or is that "Other Body Style"?

The factory centre caps on them are as ugly as sin. Just clean up and repaint the hubs black and leave them.

Older body style. Not sure what the nicknames for the new ones are...
