    New Member and question on 1967 OEM wheels

    Hello all,

    I posted this in the RWD Deville section but after looking around i thought it may be better suited here. My name is Eric and i'm new to the forum. I have a 67 Sedan De ville that I have owned for about 11 years. Car is incredible shape and is my pride and joy! I recently have wanted to take the wire wheels off and put a set of stock steel wheels back on it with some 3 inch whitewalls. I have done some searches but haven't found anywhere i can locate a brand new set. Would anyone happen the know the best place to get a set? I know 15x5 is a pretty common steel wheel for a lot of cars but i want to make sure and get a set that will fit my factory hubcaps. any help i would appreciate! Below is some pics of my car.

    Cool looking ride! I can't help you with the rims but with my limited photoshop skills I can roughly show you what it would look like with the stock wheels with a thin white wall...

    I'm pretty sure they are 15X7. I've got what I was told was the original ones from my 68 sitting in the garage and was trying to decide if I should use them or not. Car came with nearly identical wheels mounted but painted red with a chrome trim ring. Can't ,make up my mind if I should paint the other set black before I get new tires. I think yours looks great with the wires.

    You won't find brand new stock wheels for your '67, if by chance you do, they'll be priced sky high. Gonna need to make a lot of calls to junk yards. They shouldn't be too hard to find. For good used ones, you're looking at about $75 / piece, maybe less.

    Make sure you get stock steel wheels for a Cadillac. The way the stock hubcaps grip the rim is different than others.
    Also if you have disk brakes in front, you'll need different rims.

    Shouldn't rims from a rwd caddy up until 92 work? I know you can swap caddy hubcaps from different years on their steel rims.

    Just measured my 68 wheels and they are 7" outside lip to lip and inside where the tire actually seats I measured 6" so I'm assuming they are 15x6

    The 1967 is one of my all time favorite Cadillacs, I love the styling. I had a 1970 coupe de ville, but I really like the vertical headlights on the 67.
