    spokes

    I was wondering if anyones Caddy had spoke rims here. I needed to know the owners opinion as I am planning on a set of 15" 100 spokes with some Cadillac knock-offs for the middle. Stayin with the standard Whitewalls, or vogues if i can find them for not too much. Opinons? How would it look on a '93 Sixty Special?

    Re: spokes

    It would look like somebody changed the wheels and the car no longer has the "right" wheels.
    To others it would look "Cool" ~
    But the only person who has to like it is **YOU**

    Re: spokes

    Well if you do want other people to like it, don't go too small if youre going aftermarket. Don't go much smaller than the stock size (maybe 1 inch but that's all). I think 15s are about the limit, any smaller and it looks rediculous.

    Re: spokes

    My Brougham has factory ones on it. They look nice but are a pain to clean. When you're sitting in traffic you see a lot of people looking at them.

    Look on Autotrader.com for Fleetwoods or DeVilles to see if you can find any that someone added them on to see what they look like. I don't know if I'd like the way they look on it or not but I think 15 or 16" ones would look the best.

    Re: spokes

    Thanx everyone for the input...I'm planning on staying the same size with 15s...damn, cant sing TI-24's with everyone in the car. Gotta wait till spring around here though, so yea. If i had the next deville body style, no spokes. I think it would only look good because my Caddy is still kinda the boxed style. What about the vogues?

    Re: spokes

    I think spokes look great on Caddies. I have 20 inch 150 spoke wheels to put on my 78 Coupe DeVille and Im getting a set of white powder coated sopoke 20 inch wheels with the chrome spinning spoke kit for my ETC. Ive got your hook up for wheels man. I own a custom shop and I can get you 15 inch wires for around 400 plus shipping. I can get you guys if you wanna buy in bulk 20 Boss wheels a set of 20 Knock off wiires and another set of Boss wheels for around 2700. Thats cheap Spinning wires are more expensive. My cost for a set of 22inch wire wheels with spinner kit is around 1100

    Re: spokes

    ahhhh

    I wanted to get '96+ STS wheels (16") for my '93 CDV.... I wanted to stay away from spokes becuase they have the pimp image....

    .....but everyone is saying they look good.... I would want 16" 100spoke....

    .... they are a pain to clean, I have the factory wire wheels over 15" steelies, the wheel covers are spoked, adn I hated cleaning them, but i bought Eagle 1 chrome wire wheel cleaner....omg, spray it on, then when washing the car run the high pressure on it, and it cleans EVERYTHING it will be crazy....

    .... on the older style of my car, I think spokes will look *good* but I don't want to get the pimp thing going or have drug dealers tart coming up to me.... I want to hott-rod sleeper look.....although who will suspect the spokes?

    lol, all my freinds and everyone I know ays I need to get the spokes.... I suppose it woudln't be TOO bad..... make alot more people realize it is not a grandpas car

    BTW Tru, tell your friend with the Grand Am to go to:

    www.gaownersclub.com

    I am a regualr there aswell, it is one of THE best internet forums in general, adn a must for any GA owner.....

    Re: spokes

    Just told my guy to join up at that Grand Am forum...Hes one of my computer science major fellow nerds, just like me! Yea, I was going to stick with 15" just because anything bigger and people might mistake me for a rapper/ basketball player/ drug dealer, and I don't really want that. I've just always been attracted to spokes, just like I'm attracted to beatiful, naked women.

    ETC - does the price of $400 include tires also? or just the rims themselves....any knockoffs with that price?

    Re: spokes

    yeah, the GAOC is a great place, even though I am selling my GA(s) I still hang out there (same name), the people there are just really cool, the whole setting is great etc....

    ....depending on where he/you live, maybe you can make the club meet? every year in Albany, this year was our first meet, Satu we go to LVD and race (hence my avatar) and Sun is a huge picnic at a state park where people eat, talk, look at everyones cars, clean their car etc.... check out the pics here:

    http://www.gaownersclub.com/forum/sh...threadid=12521

    it is really wayy cool, I broguht the Caddy, there were a few other non GA and non Pontiac owners too.... I had told everyone here about it, but noone was interested

    ok, sorry to steal the thread

    I think 15" spokes look a little too small.... look at cardomain, there are some '91-'93 with differnt size spokes....

    plus woudln't the 16" wheels make the car handle better?

    Re: spokes

    I have a set of 16” 100 spoke Daytons with 225/60/16 vogue tires the ones with the gold strip not the gold and white. I might sell them for $550 plus shipping. If you do buy wire wheels buy Dayton or Player. I have had trouble with other brands leaking air throw the spokes rust and the spokes bending.

    Re: spokes

    550 plus shipping? That sounds like a great deal, but I have to wait till late jan/ feb. If you still got them then you think, I'll seriously consider. I was planning to buy some out of any of the vendors in lowrider magazine, and I was suprised at the difference for some local sellers. Wanted $600 without tires, for the standard 15" 100 spokes, I just like like, "Well, thankyou for your estimate", and left. About how much would shipping be from Jersey, you think?

    Something you'll have to keep in mind is the clearance under those fender skirts. And you better not take those off bouncer:
