Hi all...

Just a quick update, my coupe deville is still on the doctor, he is going to receive, new spring coils, change all suspension bushings, new gaskets, new radiator hoses, new brake pads, new expansion plugs.

The real question is, what is the bolt pattern on a 78 coupe deville? >5x5 = 5x127 or other?

Will a 20x8.5 or 22x9.5 fit a coupe deville?

20x8.5 will fit. 22s will rub in turns but fit with the right backspacing. Bolt pattern is 5x5/5x127.

You can get almost anything to fit with spacers and creativity.

i have a set of 20" 100 spoke rims and with tires they are exactly the same height as my stock wheels.

I don't use the 20"s though. I put them on last summer for a few weeks and then took them off. Didn't like them...they've been in the basement since.
