What it do Ive had my 93 fleetwood brougham for 5 months now and i have been puttin money away for a set of wire wheels. I have 511 now and next weeks pay check ill have about another 650 well 475 (100 for insurance and 75 for gas) No website has given me any information as to what will fit on my cadi. Ive tried Daytons and Players websites. I have called thier phone numbers and didnt get any help there either. I hear i am going to have to have the rear axles narrowed in order to fit reverse wires since theres the rear fender skirts. If you have a fleetwood or fleetwood brougham 93-96 and have wires without havin the rear end narrowed could you tell me where you got the wheels and what thier brand is? Ive looked on ebay as well for a set and all i can find is 13-17 inch. I dont know what will work. I just want a set of solid chrome with 3 bar spinners. Any help is appreciated. thanks- Billy

YOUR LUG PATTERN IS GOING TO BE 5 ON 5". 13X7 OR 14X7 REVERSED WILL FIT BUT YOU HAVE TO DO SOME SHAVING ON THE BACK OF THE SKIRTS. THE TOLERANCE WILL BE VERY CLOSE AND THEY MIGHT RUB SLIGHTLY WHEN LAYING LOW TO THE GROUND. THE OTHER ALTERNATIVE IS TO GET A 13X5.5 OR A 14X6

I have a set of deep dish 14x7 wires with 175/75/14's on a '95 Eldorado and I have the same type of problem. The back tires will sometimes hit the fenders when I go over bumps and dips in the road. The paint is rubbed off where the tire makes contact on the fender. I have been thinking about shaving or grinding that part of the fender so that it won't touch the tires. It's not much to take out, but I am wondering if anyone has done anything like this to make them fit better on their cars. I love the look, there's nothing like deep dish wires and I would like to be able to keep them on there. I know hydros or bags would easily fix the problem, but I don't have that kinda scratch right now and no telling when. I don't think modifying the fender would cause any problems, but I really don't know.
