    Brand New to Board have a question

    Is there any problems with putting 20 inch rims on a 95 deville. I was actually interested in buying these rims off ebay, if anyone has any info or suggestions i would appreciate it. Also is a 95 deville front wheel or rear wheel drive?

    Re: Brand New to Board have a question

    I never recommend putting that big of rims on a car like this because the tires you will have to use wil be MUCH to thin (not enough sidewall) and one big pothole and they will bent forever.....

    Those rims look very cheap and I doubt they would have the right load capacity. The deville is a HEAVY car..... Plus, they dont list the bolt pattern and offset so you have no way of knowing if they will even FIT...

    I recommend finding some good 17 or 18s, not tomention tires are MUCH cheaper and you wont lose much ride quality (20s will be very harsh)..

    The deville is FWD.....

    I would go on to tirerack.com and get rims from there.. All of them are as good or better than OEM, so you will not have to worry about the tires outlasting the rims...

    If you want to go ebay, be sure to make sure they will handle the weight..... They may "fit" but they wont be suitable for use....

    Yea, and another thing with heavy rims is your transmission life gets cut in half. Its too much of a strain on it.

    I disagree.. The rims wont weigh THAT much more to decrease tranny life.....

    Sure it may decrease the life, but hardly measureable.....

    You need to ask the guy if its 115 pattern or not, if it is, your all set.
