I need some help i want to buy 22inch rims for my 1962 Cadillac coupe De Ville but i donít know what the bolt pattern is or what the offset i need can anyone help or give me any advice on how to achieve what Iím looking for
Don't do that to a nice car - there are already plenty of urban ricers around. Clean the old girl up, work up some nice tunes, check into engine/transmission conservative modification and leave the bling to the Toyotas - not to mention the absolute mess 22's would make of the ride and handling. 18's, tasteful wheels, maybe - 22's ??? Booooo!
i just wanted the 22s for the car show not for cruzing i would never get rid of the original wheels i have got i love the look of the to much thanks guys you have talked me out of it. i have had this car for a while & every now & then i think about putt on some 22s to change the appearance of the car but i keep talking myself out of it.
Look at it another way: That car appears to be an example of a well-maintained classic Cadillac. Just about anything you modify or change, appearance-wise, destroys that magic and will turn it into just another ugly U.S. urban assault vehicle with big wheels and neon lights.
My opinion from past hot rod building experiences.
Caddy down under- I looked into it with my 62 Caddy....first off, you will need to get custom hubcentric rings for the wheels otherwise it will be very wobbly when going at certain speeds without them. Also finding a rim that will fit with the wheel skirts on our cars is not easy...it would have to be a narrow rim. Most 22 in wheels are not designed narrow, so there's your biggest obsticle...it's not worth it honestly. Hence why i opted not to do it...
