Were those rims on there before? They look like they could have been a stock option in the 90s.

They are the stock 16"s - if you look on eBay or locally you may be able to find center caps, either OE with the R emblem or plain without. [this is wrong - they are not the stock Riviera 16"s]

No they are not Riv wheels. Maybe Buick 2002 - 2006, but not Riviera

not sure if you`re interested in the factory 7 spoke chrome but they look good. I'd keep it stock.

Mekk it's alright brother.
Nothing looks better than factory stuff on these cars. Once you see it in person you get to decide. Pictures just don't do justice - rims and paint.

i love the body shape on these things, but in my opinion, the wheels look a little outdated. i like bigger (but not too big) and wider wheels. i hate seeing 22+ rims on anything other than a truck. the factory 16s that came on the riv are just too small and outdated for my taste. and looking at the wheel gap day in and day out for the rest of my life is enough to drive me crazy. ill be lowering the car a little bit as soon as i get the chance

I think you're right about those being PA wheels.

they’re pretty similar, except the center hub part on the park ave is thicker, and the spokes are also thicker. these look more bubbly but mine look a little sporty. i dont know..Merry Christmas! 7e4ee210

Actually, the similar Riviera wheels are the "supercharged wheels".
Except for being, I think, a half-inch narrower than the others I actually like the 'stock' wheels
with the large satin aluminum hubs & 15 short, narrow spokes/fins around the perimeter:
http://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/330278740294-0-1/s-l1000.jpg

Between the supercharger option and the chrome option, I've hardly seen the stock wheels in the wild.
Oh, and as nice as the chrome on the outside of my wheels is, every year or two I lose air because the
chrome on the inside is flaking off (probably because of those shitty coin-op air compressors that don't
drain the water out like a normal tank compressor...)
