I finally put some 20s on the fleetwood , 1994 brougham bout 2yrs ago, some gino715, dope rims,
but2months plus, i hit a pothole, and i craked a rim. I was able to get it welded and i was good once again.
Now, 2 weeks ago or so, on the same rim, on a diff area, another crack about 5 inches or so. Air leaks out very slowwwwwwww

i was thinkin bout buyin another gino715 for about 250dollars, but then isaid, man, would any other cadillac rims fit on the fleetwood???

I know alot of the new rims wont fit ont he fleetwood cause most new caddys are front wheel drive.

What do you guys recommend??? Or suggest?

Thanks folks

I suggest a set of the Cadillac wires with vogue tires. I'm a poor man and I don't have vogues, but you get the idea. Keep it period correct, they didn't have huge ass bling wheels back in the day. It'll also ride like a Cadillac again once you get rid of those junk 20" rims.

I know Elias had a white 1994 Fleetwood with the same wheels with vogue tires. Maybe he can post a pic.

I would go for the stock Cadillac wheel, chromed, with Vogues.

There are some decent stock ones from 93-96 but I would keep the 20s.

I don't think the wires look good on the 93-96s. You can get low-pro Vogues in 20" now... that would look cool, too!

I was thinking the wires wouldnt look good on 93-96 but that does look nice, especially with the vogues.

If you buy a set of factory wires, just make sure they are for a RWD Caddy. They were a factory or dealer option from 1977-1992. Its almost impossible to find OEM center caps for them as well, so make sure if you buy a set they are included. There is an aftermarket company making center caps now as well, I don't know if they are an exact copy of the OEM versions.

IMO, Vogues are horrible tires. They ride ok, but they wear fast and are expensive just because the look.

Did you think about getting some 18 inch wheels? I have 18 inch custom OZ Novas on my black '96 Fleetwood.


Kenny is running 18 inch Boss wheels (same as yours) on his '96 and 17 inch Eagle wheels on his '93:

Just look for whatever wheels you like best. I dont like the way the factory wire wheels look on those Fleetwoods. Id rather have the FLeetwood chrome rims instead if I had one of them.

Yea i considered the 18's before the 20s, cause i didnt want to really give the caddy a badlook, aka "donks", at the same time, i liked the 20s cause it had a smaller tire, where the 18s itlooks like a bigger tire around it.
But man, i seen some fleetwoods with dope og rims, chrome, thats what i want.
The spokes look dope 2,

i appreciate the help, im going to start looking becuase putting air on the rim 3 times a day for 3 weeks now is gettin boring!!!!
