Have Tim chop some center caps on those just for a cleaner look.
I think it would finish it off nicely

I might have some center caps. You should get some N97's or you have 2 other options. Do what Matt tracker did with lugs/caps screw together, or drill/tap holes into the wheel to accept the bolt to hold on the caps. Thats for stock, non police package wheels. Or a 3rd option, get 15x8 truck wheels. They also had the center caps. Conversion vans had them too. Just make sure the back spacing on all 4 match. Been there done that.Theres a cheap OEM set of 12 N97 cap bolts on ebay. I think theres 12 in the kit.

Agreed on the buick wheels and white walls. IMO the wheels look like some kind of chocolate girl scout cookie. I'll check to see if I have caps, and you can grab them with the springs.

I have a set of the truck rally's with caps if yours dont work.
On my wagon I used rustoleum gloss sunrise red
The Walmart supercenter's carry goodyear white walls for dirt cheap
Im running 215/70r15's
The trim rings are an eBay item.
Also running chrome lugs looks good by itself with no center cap.

Hoping my caddy looks like that but with black rims. Arrow

And get some more paint on her, looking a little thin in your pic's
Consider the roll on method, since you want satin black you can wet sand out any imperfections fairly easy and roller method covers great!
