I just purchased a 95 Fleetwood and would like mine to sit the same way. Any modifications need to be done??? Thanks in advance.

Enkei SST, and I will guess that they are 18x8.5. Not sure if that car has been dropped a little.

Here's another one:

Bolt pattern is 5x127, or 5x5. And you want a low offset rim.

How about these U2 55?? They're 20" rims, I was thinking about 255/50/20. Will I have to do any suspension work??? If not, what size would be recommended??

Those don't fit the character of the car, IMO.

there are some really awesome 20" rims on Tirerack.com

Put your car in as a Chevy Impala SS and search. There are a few niceeeee 20" options for 70% off. Im talking like 250-300$ a set.

255 50 20 is WAY too tall. That is an SUV tire.

Thank ya Gentlemen,

I searched tirerack, but they only had about 10 different rims to pick from. They were really cheap, like someone said(60 per rim). I'm going to go with 245/45-20 on the U2 55's. Will I have any problems with performance, clearance or rubbing?

245 45 20 is too tall. A 245 40 20 would be almost the same as stock height.

Wow, those U2 55s are 60 bucks?

They are gonna rub your sway bar but thats only when you turn the wheel all the way. I agree that 245/45s are a tinkle too big, 40s would be the biggest I would go.

Nice link Jay, added to favorites
