: Rim sizes.

I've got a 1992 Brougham D'Elegance with the wire hubcaps as opposed to the factory wire rims. I'm hopefully going to get a 1991 Brougham D'Elegance that has the factory wire rims, but that particular car doesn't have whitewalls.

The whitewalls on my 1992 are only a couple of years old, and I was wondering if they will fit on the factory wire rims. Does anyone know if they're the same size?

They will fit fine. Your 92 steel wheels may be 15x7, and the wires are 15x6.

Good to know. Thanks. Now I need to decide whether or not I actually want to keep the spoked rims on the new car.

Oh, you want to leave the spokes on. They look great on the 77-92 cars.

Here's my coupe on wires:

Nice car!

I do like the rims with the whitewalls. The car I'm thinking of buying has the wire rims, but one is missing the centre cap. Are they hard to find?

You can get repros on ebay. 160 for the set. Originals do come up every few months...
