    Re: Post a pic of your RWD Caddy!

    lol, yea I'm serious. When I put the Impala rims on, I was like NO...but they have kinda grew on me and it handles much safer now. They have some pretty aggressive Protenza tires on them and they stick like glue when they are warm. These are the Impala rims from last year that were black, I stripped it off(what a pain that was, hours) and got some caddy centercaps. I'll probably switch back and forth but the Impala rim/tire setup is better for the aggressive suspension setup I have, I'd probably run through those T rated BFGoodrich's pretty quick. I thought I'd be able to get at least one person that liked the Impala rims better lol. Purist at heart, you guys are...

    Nah, I like custom and original. Like my caddy, custom drivetrain, stock interior and paint. When I paint it, it will have a stock looking paint but maybe a little darker.

    Not so much in my case. There are a lot of cars I have seen here with after fact. wheels that I love. That wheel just isn't one of them. There are variables that I feel would make that a lesser choice than some, money be damned. If that is the choice because of availability and/or cost I understand.
    IMO the arch of the spoke would go better on a curvier car design. The Cadillac is so much boxier and angular that I would look for something with straighter flatter lines. I also think simple five spoke is though to pull off on a big Cad. I would lean toward a multi spoke possibly even a 10 spoke with 2 smaller in 5 groups. That said personal tastes are what makes the world go round, otherwise we wouldn't have different choices or even colors! I always say if I (you in this case) like it, that's all that matters. So Let your freak flag fly! as we said in the old days!

    I do agree that a boxier rim looks good on the boxy caddys. These cars are the hardest cars to find rims for, look and bolt pattern wise. I dont think I've ever seen aftermarket rims on the 77-92 that I was like "Wow! Those looks great." I do think the Impala rims are a better choice then most.

    Check the appropriate fuses first. For the wipers, if it's not the fuse, it's probably the motor. For the interior lights (assuming fuse is good), do they go on when you turn the headlight switch all the way over? If yes, but they don't when you open the doors, suspect the door jam switch. Otherwise, happy hunting. I really hate electrical!
