I got the FWB all together. The hot looking wire basket wheels that I bought just won't balance properly and I'm giving up! They look GREAT with the new Vogues but the shimmy is driving me nuts!!

Does anybody have a set of chromed OEM wheels that they want to sell?? I know that lots of cars here have custom rims and maybe there's a set of chrome OEM's that need a good home.

Thanks

Yes I saw those wheels but I don't want to spend $2,000 for them. I may send mine out to be chromed if I can't find a second set for a reasonable price. I hate to put the vogues on with the OEM aluminum wheels.

I sold a nice set to 96 fleetwood a few weeks back
I saw they were relisted, not sure if there still for sale
but you could ask him,

I have chromed the lace-look wheels from the standard 93-96 Fleetwood and they look awesome! I put them on my 1976 Fleetwood Brougham. You need to find the chrome center caps to make them look right. The factory chrome caps seem to have have a chrome finish that appears different from chrome wheels. Chroming your own wheels is less expensive and it is 2009 chrome compared to wheels that were chromed 10+ years ago like those listed on ebay. Let us know what you do and show us how they look! Good luck! Dave

Let me know if you come across another set. I may run the chrome rims/Vogues withOUT the baskets until I find a set of chrome OEM's. My mechanic says that they balance fine without the baskets attached.

Still need a set of chrome wheels? I've got two that are listed on ebay. I'm asking $200 for the pair, and they're in nice shape. Not pristine, but nice. Let me know if you're still looking for a pair. The forum won't let me post an ebay link but send me a Private message, and I can email you pictures. NOTE: I don't have the chrome center caps.
