Welcome aboard, and thanks for signing up :)

Cadillac rims from another model are going to be your best bet..... They will still have the cadillac emblem in the middle, they will have all the offset and weight requirements met, and cadillac has a BROAD variety of rims to choose from.... I would check ebay before you do anything else......

17s are all your going to need..... They will look nice, and wont be overly blinggy.... unless that is what you want...... Plus, there arent too many tire you have to choose from when you start talking about 20s, not to mention if they will fit without rubbing your wheelwells.........

I really like the styline and look of the 92- 97 STS, but only 16" rims???
I am looking to purchase a 94 STS soon and I am on a tight buget. What rims that are 18"+ (diameter) do you think look best on it?

P.S. I am trying to stay under $200 per rim.

I think these rims look sick and are a decent value. ($ 175/rim)

thanks

18's are what I'm going to shoot for when it comes time to start giving my Caddy "The Look". Not obnoxiously big, but not sissy either. Good selection of gorgeous rims too.

thanks

Thanks 4 the replies. 17"s would look decent, but if i buy rims, i only want to once, rather than not being happy and buyin a next set. 20"s look ok, but they are a bit too big & flashy. Overall, i'm feelin the 18"s.
I am thinking about adding a new air intake, performance exhaust & a chip. That'll show the ricers what a true import killa is!

thanks.

Re: thanks

If you want more information on those other things, do a search..... There are a couple good threads about chips, and cold air intakes also.....

If you dont understand something, just post a question.......

Re: ***

It should, they are the same engine (and the same body for that matter)......

Hey, jersyman, check out www.tirerack.com. My fav. rims on there are the AT Italia Inox, and the Sport Edition Tekno's. They both look good on gen 1 & 2 STS's.

18" sport edition tekno's=$700
K&N Intake=$80
Performance chip=$59
Flowmaster exhaust=$369
Smoking all the little *** Ricers in an STS=PRICELESS
