    I have a 1972 Cadillac Eldorado Convert. It is FWD and i tried to put on 14 inch standards and they stuf out too far, close for would wreck the 1/4s. Anyways i would like to get a set of 20-24 inch rims, this is a 5000 lb with the majority of the weight on the two front. are wires strong enough? the tires on it now measure 28 inched across, so i dont think i will need any suspention work. anyways if anyone has ever done this to a car like this, i would like to see pics and what problems did you occur?

    Wires will work, jut try to get as many spokes as possible on them.

    If 14 inch standards stick out too much then 20-24's will be even worse. Front wheel drive 20's might work.

    Yeah i guess, i gotta go measure the bolt pattern to the fender skirt. FWD are hella expensive, will they have prblem holding a 5000 lb car?

    A FWD wheel measures around 3 inches, from the front side off the brakes to the outerlip off the wheel, excluding the knock off, keep this in mind and you know when it fits your Caddy.
