Do you have to narrow the rear on a coupe deville to fit 13x7 or 14x7 reverse offset on it?

It's an 83 coupe so it's the rwd one. I thought I remember someone saying something about it and wanted to check. Thanks in advance.

Now that I'm done clownin' 13x7's might rub with O.G. D's or Z's. You'll need to trim a little off the wheel well in back. Up front you know you have to grind the shit out of the caliper and use a spacer on the adapter, I know I did. Now, with chinas for what ever the reason they fit better in the back without any trimming of the wheel well. Up front, little or sometimes no grinding of the caliper is needed. Maybe a very thin spacer up front.

I had 14x7s on my 84 and they didn't rub. But if they do all you have to do is grind down the inner fender a little. No problem. The front will need a spacer and a little caliper grinding. Again no problem.

TTT

My players are 13's. only needed 1/4" spacers up front no grinding of caliper needed, and rear barely rubs on left side when taking a corner too hard or fast.
