Option 1 are DTS wheels, the chrome fanblade type...

Option 2 are DTS wheels, but these are just machined later model wheels

Both are 17's... 16"/17" = 94% so 17" are 106% larger roughly (in the chop you just increase the wheel size 106%)

I think I prefer 17's to 18's to keep the sidewall height correct and the ride quality nice and cushy... just the way I like it.

I'm also going to tint the windows soon too. (shown in the chops)

What do you guys think?

I like option 1. Opt 2 looks like it's still stock.

Well I went to the Cadillac dealer this weekend and got a real close up view of Option 2's..... They are okay, but they don't have a lip. The spokes just come out to the edge... I like a lip on my rims...

I'm still debating. It's not until '08 before I do anything so I can afford to be picky..

Can't wait to get them though!

Try looking on your local craigslist. You will find sweet deals for better rims.
Cause to be honest, neither looks .. GREAT..

i AGREE!!!! a RIVIERA is a in a whole different class than a caddy, And if they bother werent GM, it would be like putting a chevy 350 in a mustang. And i hate rims that dont have a lip also. Im sure you can find something more classy than some stock caddy rims for a decnt price.......You should check out the new CHEVY SS rims or the 3.9L monte carlo/impala aluminum rims, Theyre pretty light and they should bolt right up. Other wise, there are some sweet 18" rims that they have.

You could always try going to a site like customwheels.com and look at your car with different wheels on it. You can even spin them. That's how I found mine, whether you like chrome or alloy look...

PostSubject: just curious of your opinion   Fri Aug 10, 2007 12:17 am

I already have my own opinion on these but I'm curious as to what you all think. My bosses friend has got a set of 4 of these wheels w/ tires that he will sell to me for $350

these aren't his but they are exactly what the rims are...

19x8 with tires on it that pretty much match the overall width and diameter of mine.

I love em, thats exactly the ones i want for my car but they were from a different brand and the wheels were accually called "RIVIERA" They were a light gunmetal. I say buy em, I dont know if they will bolt up but you can always get an adapter

IMO they don't match the Riv, but it's a heckuva deal.

agreed. I dont know if they will fit the rim, but they are cool looking. I wanted them for my rx7 2nd gen when I had it. They fit those well. 19's should fill it in good though.

He'll need to drop the car to or it'll ride higher with the same gap.

I agree that it is a Japanese GT style rim. Would look good on RX7's, 300GT's, Supras.

I might run over there today, bolt one up and take some pics just for the hell of it.

I know it fits for sure.
