Yes, 1997 wheels on 40th and CE are just stock 80 alloys with medium gray metallic paint on the inserts. Be cautious to ensure the shop uses the correct shade of metallic gray. My shop got them a little dark but they look fantastic so I really didn't mind.

Call Frank at StockWheels.com They are a supplier in Sante Fe Springs, CA Not cheap but they did a great job. Looks like you are in Los Angeles so you save the $30 per wheel in shipping.

I am experimenting with different center aps. Bottom are cheap imported knockoffs that look great and fit well. Top is the OEM that I repainted and restored but are not perfect. Not sure what direction to go. Both look great.

How to tell on wheels which is which? Newb here
Lug holes have a flat area where the lugs with washers go. The acorns have a beveled lug hole for the shape of the "acorn" lug nuts. Most good suppliers will address this issue when you order the wheels. If they do not know, then you are dealing with the wrong supplier.
