OOOOOOHHHHH GGGGGREAT. Thanks so much. These are the wheels I always felt looked best on an eldorado. The car I'm acquring has some older silver painted wheels. When I ran the vin through a friend of mine at Pontiac, he told me the code, but I had no idea what they looked like. I was planning a trip to the dealership, but thanks again....... you're a life saver!!!

I agree, those 7 spoke chrome wheels are nice, very muscular. If Cardio doc can't help you, they are not available

Hi Ron~

While the wheel style I've noticed in this thread is the exact same bolt pattern, size, and offset as that which is correct for your vehicle, the style is slightly different. Note the center cap and hole configuration. That wheel noted above ran from 1998 through 2001 as an option on the Cadillac STS, and from 2001 through 2004 as an option on the Cadillac SLS. Somebody put those wheels on that Eldorado because the factory never offered that wheel style on the Eldorado.

To be technically correct (from a purist perspective), the 'correct' wheel is noted below. Hopefully you do not want it, because while we happen to have 4 wheels in that style listed as singles (for replacement of damaged wheels), we do not have the center caps which are in-fact rare as hen's teeth and very expensive.

If you want the design like on the white Eldorado noted above, we DO have the style you seek, a detailed e-mail shall be sent to you via PM shortly.

Thank-you for your interest,

Howard H, Direct Performance

Ironically, I had a set of the wheel style noted above (on the white car) that I custom painted Black about 10 years ago for my STS I had at that time. I sold them to a fellow with a Black Eldorado. Here are pics of them on his car.

I don't think this style lends itself well to being painted Black because as Black makes things look smaller, this does not bode well with 16 inch wheels.

I'd like to thank Howard for his assistance in finding the correct "QC8" wheel for my year. I'm going to keep my eyes open for them. Thanks again....

Looks like 20s fill up the wheel well just fine. I see some opinions that if you go with 22s stay no wider than 8.5" and 245/30-22
