    Wheel specs for my '75 Eldo?

    Am I correct here? Factory wheels are 15 x 6" with a 5x5 (5x127) bolt pattern and +38 to +40 offset?

    I'd like to replace my bent and fugly factory steelies with something not-too-chromey and retain the stock size/stance. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    There are a limited number of choices, as the offset and style of wheel used to clear the large brakes on the 71-78 Eldorado are unique. For some reason, the few aftermarket wheels for these cars tend to be a little too "Superfly" for my tastes.

    Yup, very odd spec rims on these cars. There are some rims and specs here:

    The chromed aluminum, rims on the brown/black '69 Eldorado are my favorite.

    There are only very limited rims available for (and due to) that huge weird offset. I gave up. Some custom wheels manufacturers (like Lexani) can offer you something that fits. But that is north of $4K for a set of 4 with tires.
