Hello.

I am thinking of get me some wire wheels to my Fleetwood Brougham -76.
I want the wheels to be as true to the orignal as possible.
The only suitable new wheels i have found on the net is these from coker,
http://www.coker.com/store/customer/product.php?productid=18012&cat=318&page=1

Now to the question,
have any of this forums members any experiance of these wheels, good or bad, please let me know.
And if someone have a tip of another brand or manufactor homepage, feel free to post it.
Any input would be gladly recived :) .

Mathew Garret has used some Cragar rims on his '80 Fleetwood that look quite good and somewhat original. I've heard good things about the Coker wheels but they're only 6 inches wide. I know my stock wheels are 7 inches wide, when did Cadillac change from 6 to 7"?

I thought all the '77-'92s had 6.5s from the factory?

The D'Elegance came with factory Daytons that are 15x6. Both Cokers and the factory Daytons are beautiful wheels, but I'm not sure that the daytons will work on a '76 with the fender skirts. One piece of advice, if I may: Choose your whitewall carefully. I've seen the wide-white look too gaudy and out of place on a car that you would think it should work, but I've also seen where the thin-lines just aren't enough dress for a beauty like a '76. I hold a special place in my heart for the '76s. Good luck with yours.

Thanks for the input and advices, the fenderskirts can be a problem and coker is the only wire rim i have found that say that they fit up to -76.
The widht of the whitewalls havent i reflected over yet but
Phantom&RedGoat2004 is right. Depending of the widht the look can bee "right or wrong"
