    Cad wheels?

    This may be the wrong area to put this thread but I'm gonna try anyway. I just saw a STS with some sweet stock wheels and I was wondering if those wheels would fit my old Fleet?

    isnt the STS front drive? i think your fleet is rear drive , offset on the STS's wheels might be diffrent , at least this was the case witht he nissans , 240sx wheels (rear drive) would bolt up to my G20 (front drive) but the offset was wrong which caused rubbing issues and funny wheelbearing loads

    also I belive the STS has a smaller bolt patern. Plus the off set is way off. FWD wheels have such a positive offset that it'll probablly rub the frame if they even go on. SS wheels will look good though. I have seen FWD wheels put on a 37 Ford but there was a lot of machining done, etc...

    the bolt pattern on the old car is 5x139 with a zero offset, the bolt pattern on the sts is 5x115 with a high (around 40mm) offset. never happen.
