My new fleetwood, 93 Brougham. I know the low lows have been running wires on these for years. But I don't know shit about it!

What I'd like to do:
15x8 reverse wheels

What I think I need:
Knockoffs and accessories

What I need to know:
How wrong I am and where's the best place to get em

Thanks!

There are always sets on ebay. When I first got mine I was going to do 14's. You need adapters (to bolt to the hub, the part the wheel mounts to) and knock offs (spinner bits) that's it.

Here's a Roadmaster on 15x8 wires. I don't know what tire size. The color combo with those rims and tires would look killer with MAB.

Another 15x8 with vogues, these were posted for sale for $400 (old thread on lay it low) one guy called the tires monster truck tires lol..

Traditional lowriders run true daytons, which need NO adapters or knock offs.
They are usually 13" with 155/80r13's
Or are 14" with 175/70r14's

They problem becomes clearance with the rear skirts, I had 13x7's up front and 13x5.5's in the rear to get clearance on my 89 brougham.
With 14" wheels it's 14x7's and 14x6's to gain clearance.

Since your car is stock I'm not sure any of that matters.
You can run whatever you want. 15x7's are a better option,
I have a brand new set of center knockoffs with 2 bar spinners if you need them. $150 (paid $200)
Just remember red on right. White on left, all spinners tighten to the rear. So the rims on the passenger side left is tightening.
Make sure you carry a lead hammer with you, retighten every 80-100 miles. They WILL loosen up.

Oh and DIBS on any spoke wheels you buy then hate and sell Smile
