Nice, the YH is a Z/28 rim! The blue caps look home made. Can you look at the underside and see if there is a bolt or something holding them on?

The blue centers look like someone added centers meant for the five spoke 15 inch 70 and later wheels.

Re: help identafying blue bow tie derby caps

The bowties almost look like Grant steering wheel horn buttons added to the derby caps. Not quite the same but close... I think John is right...

Re: help identafying blue bow tie derby caps

I took a few pictures of the backside of the cap and compared to a typical
derby cap I noticed a few difrences. The first is on the bowtie cap there is only one thread guide,number two is the shape of the back of the derby cap is smooth while a typical cap has a indentation in the shape of the letter C.Also below the serial number is a letter x compared to a typical cap the X is in front of the serial number

I was thinking they could be late model monte carlo or chevelle
or a Canadian style cap

Re: help identafying blue bow tie derby caps

wow, they must have been glued on. I expected to see a bolt or screw holding them on!

Re: help identafying blue bow tie derby caps

they aren't glued on ,I pryed up the cap with a screwdriver and it seems there its attached with a wire cable and some kind of spring tensioner

I don't think these are homemade
