when i was talking with Final Fantasy LA about what would fit on my caddy, he said the 14x7's would fit. i asked if i needed x6's on the back, and he said NO. now a cat on my buildup thread is telling me they wont fit. Ive never had spokes before. ive always had 20's and bigger....so im new to the lowrider world. anyways, now i have a set of 14x7's that i bought off Final Fantasy LA and he wont PM me back to let me know if they will fit, or if i can send 2 of them back to get 2- x6's. so my question is:

a. will they fit
and
B. if they WONT fit, how do i MAKE them fit?

how bad will they rub? can i shave a little off the inside of my wheel well or is a matter of the wheel well siting on the tire?



sorry if this has been posted before, but communication with Final Fantasy LA was good when i was lookin for wheels, but after i paid, it was little to none. any help would be appriciated.

and if Final Fantasy LA is in the hospital, or death in the family or something like that, i can understand why hes not hittin me back, but im a paying customer and my money is still green....so i think he owes it to his costumers to respond to questions concerning items purchased thru his store. :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

theres a possibility that it might touch when sitting low... i could have the same probs with 14' on my 81 paris... but i have seen 13's on an 84 and they look nice and no prob with touch wheel barrel... you can set them up and see for yourself but i would say the only prob would be riding low with 14's.. depends also how low your going

yea I would think that they should fit, with the smallest 14" tire  that you can find. Personally I would have went w/ 13's though. Is it lifted?

and i heard 13's give a sloppyt ride????? i personally think 13's look better, but this is a daily, so i went with 14's.

I HAVE FITTED AT LEAST 30 78-91 COUPES AND SEDANS ...AND AFTER THE 5TH CAR THAT RUBBED I HAD EVERYONE ELSE RUN 14X6 WITH NO PROBLEMS ......I WAS NOT SAYING IT COULD NOT BE DONE ( CAUSE WITH DAYTONS IT CAN WITH 14X7 ) BUT WITH CHINAS EVEN WITH 175/75-14 OR 175/70-14 IT WILL RUB ON THE PASSENGER SIDE FOR SURE ....TRIMMING HELPS BUT IS NOT ALWAYS THE FIX ..
