Greetings to all,

Anyone out there running a staggered set of wheels on a 1994-1996 rear wheel drive Fleetwood?

I.e.--15 x 7 front, 15 x 8 rear wheel.

Greatly appreciate feedback on results and/or photo.

This is a great question especially with all the take-off or otherwise used wheels out there... My car is a 1979 Coupe Deville (15x6) and I think I understand correctly that the RWD Deville, Fleetwod, etc. from the 50's on up into the '80's have the same bolt pattern? If so, what is the given spec for that? 5x120, 5x115, what? I see many interesting 16x7 wheels on eBay but am never sure if they would fit. Going plus-one to get serious performance tires (235/60-16 seem to be possible) ought to be considered as well as a staggered arrangment.

1993-96 FW / FWBs bo0dl patterns are 5 x 127 mm . I considered of changing my wheels to 16" too .

How did I not see this?

Your bolt pattern is 5x127mm, or 5x5.

I don't know of anyone running a staggered setup, but I can tell you it would work, because I've seen Impala SS wheels on all of the B/D body cars (Caprice/Caprice Wagon, Impala, Fleetwood, Roadmaster/Roadmaster Wagon, Olds Custom Cruiser wagon)

Impala SS wheels are 17x8.5

Here's some shots:
