just what I have read , but I think most caddy drivers get 13x7 up front, and 13x6 in the rear to alow clearence....also if you ride 13's on the LAC ...on the front you are going to have to add a set of wheel spacers and also hit the brake caliper with the grinding wheel so the rim does'nt hit the caliper....

right on, i rode 14x7 on a 76 coupe....in retrospect i would have rode 13x7...the way i did it was 14x7 reverse with spacers on the front and 14x7 standards on the back.....if i were to do it over id do 13x7 reverse front with spacers and possibly a little caliper gringing and 13x6 reverse in the back, i think it would work out just fine

the way i did it is tried and true but the second way would look cleaner and should work without any problems.....

good luck, and post some pics of that bad boy :biggrin:
