Yep. Back before I had changed the wheels on my '95, I was thinking of going with aftermarket 18's, as 17's seemed right for the car, but 18's were just a tad bigger. Then I saw that car, and the wheel choice he made is GORGEOUS. His intent was to get a style that matched the car very closely and was even a bit like the stock wheels, but larger and flashier and he certainly succeeded.

I think 20s work well with them, cuz it does a good job of giving you more flash, but it doesnt alter the ride height. IT has the car sitting pretty much at the stock height, that is if u get the low pro tire with it, which is pretty normal.

No, it's not that dark (5%)- the black interior makes it look darker than it is. Thanks for the compliments~!

Anything over 18 inch is too big for these cars and sacrifices ride quality IMO.

I bought a set of 20s about 7 months ago and had them on the car for 4 hours before I put them on eBay and got some money back.

Here is a picture of my 18 inch Enkei SST-2 wheels. They are light, 2 piece, and forged (and might be for sale next month):

Actually, if you go with a 40 series tire (opposed to a 35, as most people do because there are more affordable options in this size), then the ride quality is very much acceptable. I find that the ride and handling is SUPERIOR to stock with this set-up (20" + Impala SS suspension). Sure, anytime you plus-size, you are going to lose a little something. But in my case, it's been NEGLIGIBLE.

Furthermore, 20" look right at home on these big-azz cars!
No one who's seen (or who has ridden in) mine has complained!

Ah, I didn't know you could get the 40 series for the 20 inch wheels. Did you have to reprogram the PCM to get the speedometer to read correctly? I had to do that when I put the new wheels on, but also got a few other modifications reprogrammed at the same time.

Anyways, those are the best looking 20s I have seen on a FWB. :thumbsup:

I agree that 20's look terrific when done properly, but that they're also the LARGEST that should be done on this car. Beyond that, it just looks comical and ends up lifted or things get really crammed.

Hearsecutor got it just right with the sizing and style, for sure, and is one of the best examples.

And the same goes for Elias, with his 18" setup being a bit better suited to more aggressive and/or comfort driving if need be--just that little bit less weight and little bit more tire help.

22s is a lil too big for that Caddy, you would be doin more harm than good in my opinion with anything bigger than 20s...

puttin Chevy flags on a Cadillac is stupid. I don't care what kind of engine it has.

Don't get mad at me cuz your tacky. Why don't you throw some Impala emblems on it while you at it....oh you already did, And some stickers on your windows advertising what mods you did...oh you already did, now you just need a big chevy bowtie across the back window, you probably already do... Why don't you go buy a honda and ruin that instead.

By the way Fleetwoods aren't made for racing, More than likely the ones being driven fast all the time will end up in Junk yards after they're wrecked in a race, or by some kid who's never driven a big car and tears it up learning.

I couldn't care less about the extra horsepower an Lt-1 gets.

wow are we like 5 again. who cares about stickers... and do you know how many people buy caddys and mod them to be faster than stock. its not because they are stupid its because these cars are fast and can be much faster, and its always nice to see someones face when they get smoked by a cadillac

All right most people who take that much effort to insult someones car is a f$#king joke. There are a whole lot of fleets out there with lots of performance mods done.And last i checked nice paint and wheels and a great sounding motor that runs is not tacky.You just have different taste.And impala badges on a car with an impala motor is my deal not urs so shut the f#$k up if you have nothing nice to say dont open ur mouth.And Destroyer i meant no insult to you im sure you have alot of performance mods that works real well

I'd like to know everyones opinion about it.If everyone disagrees with me let me know.I like my car i dont think im tacky.

Theres do's and don'ts in car customizing. Like you don't put different makes and models together. Your wheels actually look good, but the Chevy flags and stickers f*** the car off.
