And if I got 14" would it be all 14x7 or 14x6 all around?
How can I make the 13"s work out though for a car with no juice, skirts or bags. I've heard I can make it happen with no rubbing or mods using 13x5.5.

Or would it be easier to go with the 14"s, I found this set on craigslist for $300.

You should go to layitlow.com this question has been asked a million times on there. I have a set of 14x7 OG wires on my 80 coupe and it doesn't rub but I had to go with a 175 70 r 14 which is getting kinda hard to find. I have heard that the 80 and 81 Lac had a different length rear end which makes this possible. Any other year just trim the inside lip of ther rear wheel well and they will fit fine. 14x7 Daytons or Zenith have a different offset than most wires and they fit just fine in the rear but other brands you may have a problem with. But I think the only way you can get 13's on there regardless of the brand is by grinding the caliper. I wouldn't do anything less than 13x7 though because 13x5 is too small for a big Lac. I would definitely go 13x7 over 14's if I had to do it again because now that I got the 14's I want 13's so I'm gonna buy some and put the 14's on my 72 Coupe D.

I only need the ones for the front right?
