Lost a Wheel Cap

Doing some maintenance today and noticed I have one loose and one missing wheel cap.
Can some one help Identify it so I can find a replacement?
Have been on the car since I bought her in the 90s, not sure if was OEM when delivered.
Thanks

72 oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible, They are attached with 3/8 body bolts from the backside of the rim, not snap ins.

Those are 68-74 bolt-in centers. Originals and repros are widely available.

Thanks Joe,
Did not know if there were variations, ie SSI and SSII.

All 68-74 SSII/III wheels use the same center. The SSI is the Magnum 500 style wheel and is totally different.

Any idea how many bolts are in the remaining caps? Seems that 5 bolts are way more than sufficient to hold the caps on. I had three bolts in each of mine (when I had the 14" wheels) and they stayed on for 20+ years of very aggressive driving.

How perfect of a replacement do you need relative to the three survivors on your car? I just pulled out a pair earlier today that are very decent with a couple pits here and there. If interested, I can post a couple pics. I have 2-3 of the original screws too, but they need to be cleaned up.

Mike, I think you are just spinning the tires too fast with that new stroker.
