I have spoke wheels now. Not a fan.

I am looking to replace them with chrome Supreme style wheels.

Does anyone know the offset, back space, and wheel width?

I just want the same size 15" wheels I have now with P235/75R15 on them.

Nothing fancy.

My car is a '68 Deville.

Thats a shame - but everyone has different tastes - make the world more interesting eh ? Have a look at this thread http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/rwd-19xx-1984-deville-fleetwood-1985/129794-thread-rwd-cadillacs-factory-wire-wheels.html
We imported our 66 rag top with wire wheels but have no spare wheel, so I'd be keen to know also - what other cars metal rims would fit ?
How about a pic of your car ? Maybe we can convert you :)

I started a post with this problem and got a lot of help. Maybe itīs useful for you: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/rwd-19xx-1984-deville-fleetwood-1985/213780-69-deville-wheel-bolt-pattern-anyone.html You can also find new wire rims at http://www.opgi.com/tc/cadillac/237/wheels,-tires.html They are no cheap but seem to be good.

I'll give those links a look see.

Like I said I am getting rid of the Spokes so I don't need more.

I like this look a lot better. There are just too many variants in 5x5 15"s

80591

Then wrap them in Coker Classics with 3 1/8" Whites. Since nobody makes them in 4" : )

That would look.... strange on a Cadillac.

15x7 size rim would hold the 235 nicely and give you a decent ride. Don't know any other specs but I think your stock size is 15x7.

Offset, I'm assuming, would be very low. For example, for the B-cars, stock offset on the 15" wheel is -6.

Not sure about the older ones though.

Oh..........and..........I LOVE Cragar mags - can't get enough of them - but have never seen them on a Caddy - when you put them on I'd love to see a picture posted here - not the sort of car I would normally associate those wheels with.
