    wondering do y'all think it would look better if I got the paint off the rims and got them back to aluminum?

    Polished would look sweet with some Cadillac center cap decals over the deer.

    You talking about polished aluminum? Is that what they are stock? I guess I could paint them also.

    They're clear-coated aluminum, but the coating sucks. Polished SS wheels look really nice.

    Not sure about paint, white would look weird, black is nice but doesn't really fit the character of the car's body design, so you're in a weird spot.

    White rims wouldn't look as wierd as you think. I had a white 98 Monte Carlo with factory white rims very similar to the ones on your Cadillac. I thought it looked great. Of course, some people said I looked like I was driving the Malibu Barbie Dreamcar, but I just told them to stuff it.

    Re: Which look do you like?

    I dont really drive it in the winter but its gonna be parked in the driveway half in the grass and half on the pavement. The motor is still in pieces and the state just took all my rental rebate so who knows when it will be back together. Gonna need another 6/700 bucks to get it together but I just had kid number 4, hoping to somehow get it together soon but I dont know...

    Black wheel fan here, got them on my 01 Deville and Crew Cab chevy, I like the look of the black SS wheels on yours. Don't polish them, you will kick yourself later, they will never look as good as chrome and you'll have to keep polishing them, over and over. +1 on the white trim, looks way cleaner with the black rims. Just my 2 cents...

    think chrome or silver would look better.

    white trim looks good on it
