    Don't do it please. This is a nice original classic car with nice wheels.

    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!

    If you want to put 22's on there, I want you to jump off a cliff

    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...

    Don't like the look at all. The dropped suspensive looks terrible. Sorry for the bad opinion, but you should have left the beautiful classic 1962 the way it was. The CLC would not like it.

    I love those wheels. Exactly the look I'm going for. What are they and what size? Also what is your tire size?
