Looks nice. It's the same colour as mine except for the pinstripe. Didn't you show us those pictures before?

NOOOO Leave the hubcaps alone :eek: If you're going to do something different with it get real wire wheels for it:) I never liked the way those wire hubcaps look. If I got a Brougham that had them I'd take them off and get the tin ones like yours for it.

I agree. The hubcaps on there win no beauty contest, but the wire ones are a dime a dozen and really don't look all that great. If you like what you got, keep them, because you really don't see many cars with that style--unlike the sorta ugly wire ones that everyone has. Neither is amazing, but unless you go all out with true wire wheels or sem-large chromies, they're about as good as they get.

Nice clean car. IMHO Factory wire wheels are too heavy and a pain to keep clean. Some rims from later Fleetwoods might be a good choice.

That's also a good suggestion. I saw an '86 once that had the chrome Brougham wheels from a '94-96 and it looked pretty good.

Yeah i have seen that done too and looks pretty good, especially with the chromers. I guy near where I live did that but he has the regular alum wheels. They are as dull as the old grey paint on his 87 Brougham. I cant understand whay people that let nice cars go down the drain :cookoo:

Thanks for the opinions. Funny, no one slammed the curb feelers.:) I bought wire caps off Ebay that were pristine, but they sucked on the car to me. Theres a place in Cali that hand makes wire wheel for caddies that gaurantee no leaks, etc. They set you back approx $1.400 for 4. I'm thinkin on it. If anyone is interested in the wired caps let me know. I never drove with them on. Fits 15 inch wheel. Wheel locks, burgundy centercaps and key included. 9 1/2 on a scale of 1-10. I also have a complete set of 14inch wires. 9 on a scale of 1-10. All locks ,centercap, and key included.
