    1981 Coupe DeVille big wheels?

    Not being too big a fan of the lowrider image (not this week anyway) I would like to simply lower my cad an inch or two. I think these cars look so much longer and meaner when given a little drop.

    After I do so I am hoping to put some nice LARGE wheels on there (read: 18"-20") Has anybody done this successfully? If there are any tire and wheel dealers on here that have done this and could help with fitment ie; backspacing, bolt pattern, rim width and diameter, and tire size. I want complete drivability I will not deal with rubbing or limited turning radius and I will not put lowrider 13x7's on it.

    Any suggestions?
