Those look like aftermarket wire wheels. The wire wheels of the 80's had a big center cap looking thing.

they just changed the caps to some two prongs...the ones on that car are the real thing...that car is from the Boyz In Blue Bosshogg Outlawz...they are hard to find rims in houston, people be gettin killed for them cuz they are so rare, especially the 84's because they made less of them and they poke out more than the 83's

yea i knew it would take a fellow Texasboy to know. that's slim thug's caddy. around here we just call them "Swangas" but i don't know what caddy they came on. they do just switch out the center piece. there going for like $3g's a set and if you already have them they might cost you your life. were they on flleetwoods or what?
thanx

to texas people we would rather get the 84s or 83s (from cadillacs from 1984 and 1983) that poke out then get cragar, which tried to imitate the design when they stopped making swangas....when i see cars with cragar star wires i just laugh at them....i would rather get the real thing
