You can't fit anything bigger than 20" on them caddy's without major modification. I have 96' DeVille with 20" rims on 245/35/20 and it rubs in the front.

I'm not sure if 22's would fit, although I wouldn't be surprised if they did. However, I would strongly recommend that you stay away from FWD wires. They damage way too easy. I got a set on my wifes civic (18X8 w/ 215/35/18) and she's on her second set b/c they are weak wheels. The area where the spokes meet the dish is not towards the center of the wheel like standards and reverses. The spokes are at the edge, and b/c of that, they are more prone to damage from bumps....even samll ones. Plus...FWDs don't look to good from the rear and front views of the car.

It would be better to do what some dudes here said about hooking up the 17" vogues b/c the higher profile tires will absorb a lot more impact. However, if you're dead set against that, you can actually get away with 20" standards on your car w/o them sticking out. I don't know if they'll rub, but if they do, then it probably ain't much. I've seen a few FWD rides out my way w/ them standards and the cars look good. There's a pic of a mid-90's deville at lowrider.com. Scroll down to "cool rides" and click on it. You'' be taken to different page where you can search through all the makes and models for either show cars, lowriders, street cars, etc. I just tried searching for it but couldn't find it. But I know standards will work on them FWD caddy's. Take your wheel off and place a 20 on there and you'll see. Good luck. ;)

17inch vouges look like ass on that car .20s will fit but 22s will rub THE STRUT SPRING PERCHES trust me I know Ive had one with 20s on it ,you can extend the stut below the lower spring perch but the car will not handle well.They look good though. measure from the ground up to the SPRING PERCH to see what Im saying.

see its not the worrying about jacking up the car for 22's, its the rear skirts thats the problem, they dont make FWD 22'' face rims so they will stick out and there is a skirt so that wont happen, Im not to sure though but i think i heard about 22'' FWD wires, im not sure now but has anyone heard of these? if so, what are the prices and who carries them?

don't do it man... you'll ruin them wires within a week. FWD wires are weak and bend easy

Im not talking about jacking up the car, the 22s wont fit under the struts the wheelwells are big enough but you physically cant fit the wheels under the struts ,not with tires on them anyway.
